Summary

With this newly updated guide in hand visitors and locals can walk the streets of Chicago and discover why the town that brought us Michael Jordan, Al Capone, and Oprah is anything but a “Second City.” Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods represent a true melting pot of America—from Little Italy to Greektown, Chinatown to New Chinatown, and La Villita to the Ukrainian Village. It’s also the most walkable city in the country, with flat streets laid out in a sensible grid and 21 miles of stunning lakeshore. Here you can get ethnic culture in Andersonville or high culture at the Art Institute, listen to the blues on the South Side or catch a ballgame on the North Side, and marvel at the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in Oak Park or at nature’s masterpiece along Lake Michigan. In Chicago, every neighborhood has a unique past, every character an intriguing story, and every side of the city is covered in this newest addition to the award-winning urban Walking series.
