Board the open-top, double-decker bus at any of the 14 stops to start your hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour of Chicago, and listen to live commentary through provided earphones to find out fun facts about the city and its iconic architecture. The full circuit takes about about 2 hours, but you can hop off and back on as many times as you. Buses run regularly, giving you flexibility to discover the city at your leisure.
The bus route takes you through Grant Park, known by locals as Chicago’s ‘front yard,’ 319 acres (129 hectares) located in the city’s business center. Perhaps hop off at Millennium Park and gaze at your warped reflection in the world-famous Cloud Gate, more commonly known as ‘The Bean,’ an outdoor art installation made of polished stainless steel. Or if you're an art lover, don't miss the nearby Art Institute of Chicago, home to 300,000 works of art from the Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and American eras of painting, including Nighthawks by Edward Hopper and American Gothic by Grant Wood.
As the bus crosses the Chicago River and rolls onto the Magnificent Mile, you can admire some of the tallest buildings in the United States, like the John Hancock Center and the historic Water Tower. If you like heights, hop off to visit '360 Chicago' at the John Hancock Center to enjoy a bird's-eye vantage point of the city. See below for the complete list of stops.
