Ferris Bueller Tour

I noticed some other posting their favorite tours around Chicago, but I personally like to try to have my own Ferris Bueller's Day Off tour. I've only done it once, but it was one of my best days in Chicago.

All you need to do is watch the movie and do your best to recreate as many of the scenes in the movie as possible. Go to the top of the Sears Tower, go to a Cubs game, if there happens to be a parade you can check it out and maybe lead a huge dance (okay, so maybe I'm the only one cool enough to pull it off). But I try to do even some of the little things, like take a cab with some friends and con my way into a really nice restaurant with no reservation.

Chicago is one of the best cities in the world, and so few films have every really portrayed it as such, but Ferris Bueller's Day off was definitely one for the ages, and I think it's a great way to have some fun. I'm planning on trying it again soon when some of my cousins come for a visit!

I think such a tour would be a HOOT! I heard of one a year or so ago. FBDO is one of my all time favorite flicks! And not just because I spent a whole day on Dearborn Street as a crowd scene extra for that famous parade scene!
