"l" TRAIN TOURS
TOUR WITH THE BEST
Chicago’s "L" Train is the second longest rapid transit system in the country, and the best platform to observe architecture detail in Chicago.
The "L" Train line not only gave the “Loop” its name, but helped serve as a catalyst for the development of the business center of Chicago. Join our expert docents as they explore the city’s renowned architecture from over 20 feet above ground, and learn about the elevated train line as it evolved over its century-long life in the city.
