Format: Paperback
Access guides separate chapters into neighborhoods, making it easy for the visitor or city dweller to access the best restaurants, shops, cultural and historical attractions, etc. in the area where you are at the moment. Although it is more conventional than hip, historical insights and comments from natives makes for a complete Chicago experience.

If you don't buy another travel book when planning on going to Chicago, buy this one! It is easy to navigate, full of lots of stuff that are a must. Access Chicago covers it all, hotels, events, places to see for adults and kids, restaurants, getting about the city, in an easy format. You won't be disappointed with Access Chicago.
