Chinatown Walking Tour


REGISTRATION AVAILABLE 5/10/19

Chicago for Chicagoans dives into the rich cultural tapestry of the city again on our oh-so-popular 2 hour neighborhood tour of Chinatown, featuring Chicago for Chicagoans' Vitaliy Vladimirov or Patti Swanson alongside special guest collaborator Debbie Liu! Debbie is a lifelong Chinatown community member whose work with the Coalition for A Better Chinese American Community (CBCAC) has focused on modernizing this unique pocket of Chicago while preserving its iconic heritage.Beginning at the Cermak-Chinatown Red Line station, the tour will cover the history, architecture, and landmarks of the second-oldest Chinatown settlement in the country. Discover the area's distinctive 20th-century buildings, bustling commercial streets, and skyline views while learning about historic and modern struggles against urban renewal, resident displacement, and gentrification.​The afternoon will end at Ming Hin Cuisine, a Michelin-recognized local favorite for Dim Sum. ​Come learn more about your place in space! ​​​

Chicago for Chicagoans happily exists as a "pay-what-you-can" tour service. A suggested tip of $10-20 per person is always appreciated, but reviewing us on Yelp, liking us on Facebook, spreading the word, and attending future tours tells us how much you love us too! We are a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit that creates inclusive walking tours by & for Chicago residents, designed to represent the histories of all Chicagoans.
