As the third most populous city in the country, Chicago has had its share of triumphs and tragedies. Among its triumphs is its world-renowned architecture. Home to more than 1,200 high-rise buildings, Chicago contains some of the world’s tallest buildings, such as the 108-story Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower). Among its tragedies is the 1903 Iroquois Theatre fire, which went down in history as the deadliest single-building fire in the United States; the disaster claimed more than 600 lives. Expect to hear these facts and so much more throughout the tour before ending at the Trump Tower Plaza. For a fun history lesson, look no further than this Pedway adventure.
