The adventures begin at the Chicago Cultural Center Visitor Information Center, 77 E. Randolph St. Start by meeting with an Urban Ranger representative to develop the day’s itinerary. Mini-adventures are particularly family friendly, says Dorothy Coyle, director of the Office of Tourism. Estimated to last about 30 minutes, these walking mini-tours include participation pins and questionnaires to guide your trip.
A guidebook to all seven themed trips as well as the mini-adventures is available free at the Cultural Center and includes icons for locations on the tours that are considered family friendly.
