CHICAGO is truly one of the world’s great walking cities. Filled with equal parts glamour and grit, its diverse neighborhoods represent a real melting pot—from Little Italy to Greektown, La Villita to the Ukrainian Village. And it’s easy to get around town, with flat streets and great mass transit.
In Walking Chicago, long-time Chicagophile Ryan Ver Berkmoes takes you on 31 selfguided tours through this classic American city. You’ll soak up history, political gossip, and architectural trivia, plus tips on the best cafes, bars, and night spots. You can listen to the blues or catch a ballgame, marvel at Frank Lloyd Wright architecture or admire 21 miles of stunning shoreline along Lake Michigan. Whether you’re looking for a long walk on the beach or the perfect slice of deep dish pizza to
fill your belly, grab this book, step outside … walk Chicago!
