Description

Experience the best of bustling Chicago in just a day on this easy adventure from New York City. Touch down in the Windy City in just a few hours and head off to uncover famous landmarks, bold architecture, and stunning views from spectacular heights—all from the ease of a hop-on hop-off bus.

Following your arrival in Chicago, the day is yours to do with as you please. Board a convenient double-decker bus and set off to see the city's most significant sights. Stroll among the large-scale sculptures in Millennium Park, take a trip to space at the Adler Planetarium, or travel back in the time at the Field Museum of Natural History. You can go shopping for luxury goods on Magnificent Mile, or take advantage of all the attractions at Navy Pier, from the IMAX Theater to the Centennial Wheel. On this truly customizable tour, the options for sightseeing are endless.

If you’ve never been to Chicago, don’t miss your opportunity to admire jaw-dropping views from the 103rd floor Skydeck of Willis Tower. With Fast Pass admission, skip over the lines to board a high-speed elevator that soars to the sky at 1,600 feet (488 m) per minute. Once you reach the top, gaze out into the distance for up to 50 miles, or stare down into the streets through the glass floor balcony.

Midway through the day, stop for lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe in the heart of Chicago’s vibrant River North neighborhood. After fueling up on the restaurant’s renowned burgers and fries or satisfying salads, head back into the Chicago streets for more adventure before catching your evening flight to New York.
