one city...one year...85 tours

Around Chicago in 85 Tours Challenge

I did it! I took all of the Chicago Architecture Foundation's 85 tours in 2010. I walked, bussed, biked, Segway-ed, "L"-trained and boated all around Chicago learning about the history and architecture of our beautiful city.  

The Around Chicago in 85 Tours Challenge ended with a celebration at the famous and historic Chicago Theatre where we all celebrated the end of the journey with drinks, apps and a little thank you speech, which of course made me tear up.  

Thank you everyone for your support! I couldn't have done it without you!

Be sure to keep on following CAF on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr. I'll still be spreading the word about the Chicago Architecuture Foundation and planning social media events throughout 2011.

I look forward to connecting!

See. Comment. Share. Connect.

But it doesn't stop here! You can still visit the 85 Tours blog to read my reviews and thoughts on each tour and your comments are still welcome. Continue following me on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr. I'm still using use social media to spread the word about the Chicago Architecture Foundation and to organize different social media events throughout the year.

If you’re planning on taking a few of our tours—or even trying the Around Chicago in 85 Tours Challenge yourself—I highly suggest that you get a CAF membership. CAF members enjoy many benefits, including more than 65 free tours and annual 2 for 1 tickets for CAF’s most popular tour, the Architecture River Cruise. With individual memberships at only $65 it’s a steal!

Find out more information on our membership page and remember, there's no shame being a tourist in your own city. Get out there and explore, Chicago!
