For much of the 20th century, Chicago's South Side was an industrial powerhouse. Meatpacking, luxury trains and steel production were three of the great economic engines that drove the city toward prosperity. When these once-robust industries began to decline, the result was unrivaled unemployment and hardship for those who lived and worked on the South Side, rendering the area part of the growing Midwestern "Rust Belt." This three-hour bus tour seeks to highlight the achievements and legacy of these manufacturing dinosaurs that, though now extinct, were an important part of the city's growth and history. You'll explore the Pullman neighborhood, the "South Works" steel manufacturing neighborhood, Hotel Florence and more as your knowledgeable guide shares fun and interesting facts. You can even compete in a trivia challenge and win fun prizes.
