The Run Down

No matter how long you’ve been in Chicago, the city’s skyline and its architecture will always find a way to stop in your tracks in wonderment. Maybe it happens during “Chicago Henge, ” the twice a year phenomena where the sun sets in perfect alignment with downtown’s grid patterned streets. Or perhaps it’s during your daily commute on the Brown line when the train crosses the bridge over the Chicago river.

For this guide, we’ll try to replicate some of those awe inspiring moments on a downtown tour where we’ll see the city from high above, and go inside some of Chicago’s architectural marvels. Here are the details.

Some of the city guides on Nande are free. Others, like this one, are for members only.
