Comments about Smart Destinations Chicago Architecture Foundation:

I go on an Architecture Foundation walking tour every time I am in Chicago and always learn something new and interesting. The tour guides are very well trained and love to answer questions. This is the best way to really feel like you "did" Chicago.
