Go on a captivating journey through Chicago's Financial District and the N. Michigan Ave. corridor with Ronnie Frey, your guide, interior designer, and historical architecture guru. Immerse yourself in the glamour of the Roaring 20s as we explore 7 stunning Art Deco buildings, each a masterpiece in its unique and individual way. Along the way, discover other notable properties and outdoor sculptures that contribute to the rich tapestry of Chicago's architectural history.

As we stroll approximately 1.5 miles, Ronnie will transport you back to the era of the New Machine Age, where Art Deco reigned supreme, celebrating the modern life of the time. Be prepared to be mesmerized by the intricate details and grandeur of these architectural gems. Ronnie's expertise will paint a vivid picture of life in the Roaring 20s, providing insights into the stories behind these iconic structures.

While some stops may include brief tours of lobbies, please note that on certain days, interiors may be closed. In those cases, Ronnie has curated a photographic tour that showcases interiors through his lens and historic photos from various preservation websites. This fun and fabulous walking tour promises an unforgettable experience, blending architecture, history, and the vibrant spirit of the Jazz Age.

The tour starts in front of the Wintrust Bank Building, 231 S. La Salle St., Chicago, IL 60604, and ends at Hampton Inn - North Loop - 68 E Wacker Place.

See you out on the trail!
