Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was the only one on a 27-person choir tour of Chicago who thought to pick up a book like this before we left, and it made me a very popular person. Everyone in our group was able to use this book to find restaurants, clubs, stores and attractions that interested them. We relied entirely on public transit, so the bus and El directions for local attractions were helpful, but we could have used more information about the MetroRail, as we were staying in the suburbs. We were guided to some excellent restaurants, and the pizza at Lou Malnati's was everything we hoped.
