Buena guía el sábado es un buen día para el recorrido no hay gentes y puedes apreciar mejor la Arquitectura del Centro de Chicago y caminar muy tranquilo a diferencia de entre semana por las grandes oficinas corporativas, dependencias de Gobierno Tribunales federales Estatales etc que se encuentran laborando
