Features: Visitors can discover Chicago's unique charm and many offerings while learning something new about the city with a Chicago Greeter. Catch the enthusiasm of city-wise locals who volunteer to share their knowledge and love of the city through visits on foot and public transportation. Enjoy the local points of interest on these two to four hour visits as well as some of the Greeters' favorite spots. 

Just a sampling of the neighborhoods you can discover: Andersonville - first settled by Swedish immigrants and still has many Scandinavian restaurants and shops, as well as the Swedish American Museum. Bucktown/Wicker Park - Chicago's hottest new neighborhood with trendy shops, galleries, restaurants and nightclubs. Lincoln Park - a popular residential neighborhood with the free Lincoln Park Zoo, world renowned blues clubs, dance clubs, restaurants and quaint shops. Little Italy - beneath the shadow of the University of Illinois at Chicago, centered around Taylor Street, is one of the oldest communities in the city, famous for its family-owned restaurants and residents who are primarily of Tuscan descent. The Loop - the pulse of the city still beats in "the Loop" where Macy's and Carson Pirie Scott remain venerable veterans of State Street shopping; also, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Harold Washington Library Center and multiple theaters lend the area a cultural edge.
