A nice guild book for a short trip. Very good restaurant recommendations by area.

I've reviewed several travel guides lately, a number from Eyewitness Travel. This is another useful guidebook. And since I am from Illinois originally and Chicago always beckoned as a terrific place to visit, I was most interested in how well this book satisfied. Well, to end any suspense as to my answer, it satisfied very well indeed.

The first part of the book provides background context on Chicago--from four suggested tours of Chicago to a brief history of the place and other introductory inf

The top 10 series is a reliable guide to pretty much any major city, so I picked up this one for a weekend trip to Chicago. The maps were helpful, and of course there were more things to do in there than anybody could possibly do in just two days. Still, the book was a good starting point. My only complaint: the book (2014 version) indicated there was a walk-through model heart at the Museum of Science and Industry, but when we got to the museum staff members told us they hadn't had that for at ...more

I so love the TOP 10 series! My book is 10 years old, but for the most part it still works. This time we were only in Chicago for about 23 hours, and the girl just needed to run around more and not be forced into being quiet at the Art Institute. And the one kid just did not want to do the Aquarium/Planetarium/Field Museum. So basically we just hung out around Millennium Park most of the day taking pictures by statutes and ducking back between skyscrapers in search of Chicagoan food. However, th ...more

This book is fabulous because it is a good balance of the well-known, the off-the-beaten path, and varying levels of in-depth and thumbnail information. Has good maps and is also purse size. This book is good for tourists and locals alike, though is certainly tailored to the adult crowd (very few kid-friendly suggestions, but then there are entire books dedicated to that for Chicago so it is fine).

This little guide was okay. You know, it's a little subjective to determine what's the best or most important things you want to see or do in any city. The information was helpful, and the map was great, but I'm glad I bought another guide to go along with it.

We spent ended up spending 3 weeks in Chicago, one in April and two in May and I needed to read up on the city and get a feel for it.

This certainly wasn't a comprehensive guide book, but it gave a quick overview of the highlights of Chicago. It was fun to look at and get ideas. I then went on-line or used my Frommer's guide to get the much-needed details.

This is a good book to read before you go and have for a reference when you are in Chicago!

The map is the best part. It is laminated and folds so small that it can fit into a pocket. It includes both north, south, and Chicago city center along with a map of the CTA.
