Between World War I and the Great Depression, more than 80,000 bungalows were built in Chicago. These one-and-a-half story homes—with detailed masonry and windows, dormered roofs, sheltered entrances and neat lawns—signified the pursuit of the American Dream.
On this special bus tour, you'll discover the aesthetic evolution of the historic Chicago Bungalow, factories inspired by the "City Beautiful" movement and neighborhood parks that were impeccably designed. Visit the neighborhoods of Ravenswood Manor, the Villa, Portage Park and Galewood.
Note: Some walking is required.
