    Perfect travel companion

    For a week long trip to Chicago I was looking for a map of the city after doing some initial research on the web. For practically the price of the map alone the Frommer provided a detailed mmap in a separate pouch in the back of the book along with a great summary of the city. After looking at several other guides this had the best of all worlds: compact size, removeable map, transit map, concise listings and reviews of the city's sites. We took the map and the guide every where.
    Highly recommended.
