I have been to Chicago scores of times over the years and I love coming back and revisiting the great places I have been before, but I also like to explore new things. Chicago is big, thriving and ever changing so there is always something new to explore. Recently, I came across a great Chicago travel resource, 111 Places in Chicago That You Must Not Miss by Amy Bizzarri – and I discovered many new things to check out when I return in a few weeks, and beyond.

About 111 Places in Chicago That You Must Not Miss by Amy Bizzarri:

“Adventures await, from the glamorous to the gritty. Sip dirty martinis in an elegant, underground, 1920’s bank vault. Paddle a kayak down the infamous Bubbly Creek of Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle. While away an afternoon in a salt cave, or smoke a classic cigar in the oldest family-run tobacco shop in the U.S. Snorkel a 32-acre, limestone sheet shoal, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the Midwest. Dine outdoors in a 23rd floor Beaux-Arts cupola overlooking the Chicago River. Whether you’re an out-of-towner or a diehard Chicago dweller who thinks you’ve seen it all, these 111 hidden places are waiting for you to discover them.”

111 Places in Chicago That You Must Not Miss by Amy Bizzarri is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers everywhere.
