About the Author

Kate Silver loves checking different countries off her list, as she explores the world in true travel writer fashion. But even more than that, she loves digging deep into her own city of Chicago, as she's done in the 2015 Frommer's EasyGuide. Silver specializes in travel, food and feature stories, and her work regularly appears in Washington Post, Chicago Sun-Times and Southwest Airline's Spirit Magazine. Before moving to Chicago, she lived in Las Vegas, where she co-authored Pauline Frommer's Guide to Las Vegas and Frommer's Las Vegas Day by Day.

We all want a funny friend in places we visit, so that we have the inside scoop on what to see, do, and eat from Someone Who Knows Us. I have to admit, that’s sort of a far-fetched dream. But enter author Kate Silver, who is, with her new book Frommer's EasyGuide to Chicago, now everyone’s interesting, witty bestie in Chicago.

Here’s the funny girlfriend you need to help guide you through the best of the city of Chicago. To wit: do you know why Chicago is called the Windy City? It’s not for the weather, but because of the politicians. That’s on page 1. The book gets better from there – inside scoop after inside scoop. Highly recommended for visitors and locals alike.

This is the guidebook you need to get before you visit Chicago or if you just want to know more about this city. It's easy to read and packed with all kinds of interesting stuff to see and do. Great guidebook for the most relevant and up to date events and city hot spots and it's small enough to take with you! Can't wait to experience some of the things I read about in Chicago in this great little guide. Highly recommend.

I just moved to Chicago with my husband and three kids. Because we lived here before for a little while, I was familiar with some "must see" spots, but I wanted more. What comes after the Art Institute, Millenium Park, Lincoln Park Zoo, etc.?

Well, this little guide gave me a whole lot more stuff to look forward to seeing and doing. Sure, those main attractions are in here, too, but the guide goes beyond the basics. It lists bike tours, neighborhood bars, theaters, museums, brewery tours, and on and on. Just so many things I hadn't thought of before. And I know the suggestions are good because 1) the things I've done out of this guide have been really fun and/or tasty, and 2) the recommendations from this list actually overlap the recommendations given to me by local friends.

Overall, I'm really happy with this guide, and I'd recommend it to people visiting the city for the first time AND to people who've lived here for a year or two but are interested in seeing more of the city. It's been an invaluable resource to me.

Great restaurant recommendations. (The Purple Pig is excellent.) Easy to read and navigate. On our first trip to Chicago we felt we had a native making suggestions of how to avoid crowds and what best to see. Witty writing style. A good investment for any traveler to the 2nd City.

I've been using Frommer's guides for over 20 years and they never fail to disappoint. The reviews and suggestions are objective and the writing (especially in this guide) is entertaining and winsome. I particularly enjoy the tidbits, trivia and interesting facts that aren't included in other guides of this type. Looking forward to next year's addition!

Like other Fodor Guides, this book provides a lot of useful and reliable information. Travel guides are one of the few kinds of book I prefer in paper, but Fodor can be navigated more easily than most others on my Kindle.

Typical Frommers. Informative and helpful in the planning process. We relied a lot on Yelp when were were out and about but this helped us create basically a list of things we didn't want to miss.
