Tour group Strolling on 66 at Adams and Michigan


What better day each month to celebrate the history and importance of Route 66 in Chicago than the 6th? Explore the Double-6 and its neighborhood every month on the 6th!

Month in and Month out, keep your eye on the 6th and if you are available and in the area, you will find me talking and walking somewhere on or about Route 66 in Chicago!

The time of day that each tour starts will vary, but it will always be 66 minutes after an hour! (The first tour on 9/6/11 will start at 12:66 p.m., a.k.a. 1:06 p.m. to most folks!) Some will be scheduled for mornings, some in the afternoon, and some will be during Happy Hour after people are done with their 9-to-5s! (These might even include a bar crawl or two, or SIX!)

The schedule, details, and itinerary for each Stroll on 66 will be posted here. This page will also link to a journal about past tours!

These tours will start and/or stop on Route 66 (Adams Street or Jackson Boulevard in the Loop and Near West Side, Ogden Avenue in North Lawndale, Cicero, Berwyn, Lyons, and McCook, Joliet Road in Lyons, McCook, Countryside, Indian Head Park, and Burr Ridge). They will then venture into the neighboring streets and stories, interpreting the present, past, and future of these historic environs.

Each month will provide a new adventure on the 6th–on and around the DOUBLE-6! These tours will cost $12.00 per person–66% of my normal price of $18 per person.

Reservations will be required! If you would like to walk on the 6th on 66 please email me at dave@windycityroadwarrior.com or contact me through this page: http://windycityroadwarrior.com/Contact.html or call me at 312-432-1284
