If you’ve taken an architecture boat tour in Chicago, you’ve heard a smattering of common urban myths and legends masked in “truth” because the tour guide supposedly knows best. But most tours are little more than regurgitated scripts that unfortunately perpetuate these myths. And then the guests who take those tours spread those myths to their local friends, and the myths become “truth”…but they’re not true.

On this brand new, all-outdoors tour, Inside Chicago Walking Tours recounts some of the most commonly told urban myths in a fun “Two Truths & a Lie” format, where — just like the social game it’s named after — you’ll be given the TRUTH behind each myth told on so many tours, and we’ll add a few more truths to that. Is the Ceres statue on the Chicago Board of Trade really faceless because the artist got lazy? Did Al Capone really operate a speakeasy in the Jewelers’ Building? Was the Carbide & Carbon Building modeled after a champagne bottle in order for the architects to thumb their noses at Prohibition?

Just in time for Fall, this myth-busting and mystery-solving tour will finally satisfy your curiosity about the real truth behind the myriad rumors spread in (and by) Chicago’s large tourism industry. We believe that the truth is so much more valuable! Come join us on a debunking mission as we weave our way through downtown Chicago and its riverfront!
