Take a stroll through the aptly named Gold Coast, one of Chicago's most affluent neighborhoods. New mansions continue to spring up alongside the grand residences built by Chicago's 19th century elite, all snuggled in among the impressive urban architecture of Chicago's famous skyscrapers. From hotel magnate Potter Palmer's castle-like structure to the Astor Street Historical District's classic brownstones, the tour is an awe-inspiring journey into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. The tour also covers cultural touchstones in this area of the city including The Rush & Division intersection a few blocks away. This vibrant hotspot features a number of trendy bars and nightclubs -- the perfect place for people-watching and celebrity-spotting. The tour also includes the historic water tower building; the popular summer gathering spot, Oak Street Beach and Division Street's more mature counterpart, the "Viagra Triangle" at Rush, State and Cedar Streets.
