Selected by the 2017 Annual Conference Advisory Committee, a post-event tour option:
Tour guides present an accurate account of the activities that were going on in Chicago during the 1920's and '30's (prohibition). Guests will hear accurate accounts of the exploits of Capone, Moran, Dillinger and the rest of the boys! Guests remain on the bus for the duration of the tour. Some sites included are: The St. Valentine's Day Massacre, Holy Name Cathedral, and a brewery that was used illegally during prohibition. It's a very interesting tour but also very entertaining because the Gangster Guides are also actors who take on the persona of gangster and have fun with it.
The tour is one hour and 45 minutes (2 hours depending on traffic). Guests remain seated for the duration of the tour.
Cost: $30.00, payable directly to the tour company; click here to register.
