Summer in Chicago - Chicago Trolley & Double Decker Co


With summer in full swing and the girls full of energy, I've been looking for new ways for them to see Chicago. My family was invited to take a scenic ride on a Double Decker bus from Chicago Trolley & Double Decker Co. I had been on one many years ago, but never took full advantage of its full offerings. You can visit one of their many kiosks, purchase your ticket, and be on your way. When your on the Chicago City Tour you'll be able to hop on and off at any of the thirteen stops. If you download the app you'll even be able to track when the next bus is on its way. That's a great thing for those who want to spend a little extra time taking in the views and taking photos. Just be sure to keep your ticket handy as you'll need it to re-board.

Tours offered:
Downtown Tour - 13 Hop-onHop-offstops throughout downtown Chicago and River North
The Wrigley Field/Lincoln ParkZooRoute
The Museum of Science &Industry/ChinatownRoute
The Night Tour
For those wanting to experience Chicago by water, Chicago Trolley also offers the Land, Lake and River Package.

The family really enjoyed being able to see the city from up high. Seeing the tall buildings and how big Lake Michigan was kept the girls in awe. We were really excited to take some photos of the skyline on our stops near the Shedd Aquarium and Buckingham Fountain. I would recommend taking the tour towards sunset, it's just a breathtaking view of the city. I loved our tour guide. He had some great little facts about all things Chicago. And just FYI, kids 4 and under ride for free! To learn more about the stops, Double Decker bus, and Trolley visit their website at www.chicagotrolley.com. Let me know if you decide to go, I'd love to hear about which stops you enjoyed.
