Description

-This ultimate insider's guide to Chicago is fully illustrated with 111 full-page color photographs.
-Features interesting and unusual places not found in traditional travel guides.
-Part of the international 111 Places/111 Shops series with over 170 titles and 1 million copies in print worldwide
Appeals to both the local market (9,5 million people call Chicago home) and the tourist market (over 60 million people visit Chicago every year!)

Chicago. City of the Big Shoulders. What started off as a small fur-trading settlement is today a bustling metropolis. Once considered the "hog butcher of the world, stacker of wheat, player with railroads and the nation's freight handler", Chicago's colorful past remains hidden in the nooks and crannies of this wonderful windy city.

Author Amy Bizzarri and photographer Susie Inverso explored Chicago to bring you these adventures, from the glamorous to the gritty. Sip dirty martinis in an elegant, underground, 1920's bank vault. Paddle a kayak down the infamous Bubbly Creek of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. While away an afternoon in a salt cave, or smoke a classic cigar in the oldest family-run tobacco shop in the U.S. Snorkel a 32-acre, limestone sheet shoal, one of the most bio-diverse ecosystems in the Midwest. Dine outdoors in a 23rd floor Beaux-Arts cupola overlooking the Chicago River. Whether you're an out-of-towner or a diehard Chicago dweller who thinks you've seen it all, these 111 hidden places are waiting for you to discover them.

    A lovely colorful card for the holidays, complete with a cat peeking out to make it purrfect. The whimsical design and message inside make it even more special. I'm so glad I found this unique card on Etsy. Thanks for the quick shipping too!
