As a Chicagoan, I was pleased with this fun and informative resource for exploring Chicago. It balances Chicago icons, like deep dish and Wrigley Field, with lesser-known local favorites. I was impressed with the breadth of neighborhoods represented, from Devon Avenue on the North Side down to 95th Street.

Neither my husband nor I are strangers to the Windy City, but oh how I wish “100 Things To Do In Chicago Before you Die” had been out in print when we were there! I was totally impressed with the locations, research, and details in this book – not so many that you are overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, but not too few that you’re left wondering why you bought it.
