About Our Chicago Interactive Tours

Chicago is a stunning world-class city that is oftentimes overlooked when choosing to visit America’s great cities. This bustling city, famous for its architecture, is constantly looking for ways to reinvent itself by staying relevant and modern. Located right on Lake Michigan and convenient to travel to from anywhere in this US, Chicago is worth a visit in its own right.

The downtown area is filled with museums and cultural activities geared towards both children and adults. The museum campus houses the Adler Planetarium, the fabulous Shedd Aquarium, and the Field Museum of Natural History. Downtown Chicago is home to Millennium Park and the famous Bean sculpture, the Art Institute is situated just next door, and the new Maggie Daley Park with its impressive playground and ice skating rink. Further north, the Children’s Museum and the iconic ferris wheel can be found on the Navy Pier.

If you keep heading north and leave the downtown area, you will stumble upon the neighborhoods of Chicago including Lincoln Park, Andersonville, Lincoln Square and Logan Square — all neighborhoods featured in our Chicago family friendly trails.

Residential Lincoln Park includes its namesake the sprawling 1200 acre green space that includes the free and open year-round Lincoln Park Zoo. The park is full of free gardens and features for the whole family to enjoy. In the summertime, you will find most Chicago residents enjoying the lake, sunbathing at the beach, and running, biking, or strolling along the scenic Lakeshore Path.

Andersonville is full of independent boutiques that have survived being taken over by chains. The Swedish American Museum is a lovely hidden gem here with a Children’s Museum that is educational and fun for the kids. Check out Women & Children’s First Bookstore which holds storytime with Miss Linda on Wednesday mornings.

Lincoln Square almost has a European vibe with its Giddings Plaza and its boutiques like Merz Apothecary.

Logan Square which boasts historical homes on its wide, Parisian-like, boulevards has been undergoing a renaissance of sorts as it has been taken over by hipsters who have been restoring and bringing incredible farm-to-table style restaurants, charming independent boutiques.

All neighborhoods are family-friendly with its mix of parks and delicious family-friendly restaurants. Any time of the year, there is much to explore in The Windy City with your little one in tow!
