Brick of Chicago Old Town Neighborhood Walking Tour

On a Brick of Chicago neighborhood walking tour, you’ll learn about all the elements that make Chicago one of the most interesting and dynamic cities in the world. Afterwards, you’ll never look at the built world (or the humble brick) the same way again!

Brick of Chicago neighborhood walking tours have been voted one of Chicago’s best tours by Curbed and the Chicago Reader.

Old Town is one of Chicago’s most unique neighborhoods, with a blend of Victorian workers cottages, unique midcentury buildings, and massive modern homes. First built up pre-fire by German immigrants, Old Town came to fame in the postwar years as a neighborhood of artists and preservation-minded homeowners – a complicated history that includes the destructive forces of fire and urban renewal, and the creative forces of eccentrics and star-chitects. Join this tour and you’ll never be able to see Old Town, Chicago, or the built world the same way again!

After this tour you’ll never look at Chicago or the humble brick in the same way again!
