The University of Chicago is a prestigious research university in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. The campus is stunning with its gothic architecture that dates back to the 1800s. The university campus is nestled right along the lakeshore of Lake Michigan, one of the largest freshwater bodies on earth. Warmer months will provide students with endless opportunities to enjoy the beaches of the south shore while they walk roll or stroll along the lake path. 

Join me on this interactive online tour to take a virtual walk around campus and explore its famous buildings and corridors. You will also get to stop at various ponds to see turtles, fish, and other native wildlife throughout campus, making our tour a mix of informative and fun.

I have been living in Chicago for over 30 years while learning about the food, history, and neighborhoods of the city. I have spent a decade in bartending and dining out in Chicago, so I know the place inside and out. 

I love showing my friends and their friends the best places to eat or grab a drink in their neighborhoods. I now lead the Chicago team for North America Tour Hub and show my passion for Chicago through story-telling and guiding visitors to the city.
