Chicago is incontestably one of the greatest walking cities in the world. Even spontaneous tours down the Windy City's Magnificent Mile or strolls through the city's great museums can leave one awestruck, but knowing what you're seeing can enhance your entire experience. Ann Slavick's Hour Chicago cuts to the chase with 25 60-minute self-guided tours that spotlight Chi Town's architectural and artistic treasures. A concise, well-researched timesaver.
