Karen and Johnny's Brief Guide to Chicago


We created most of these short guides for out-of-town guests to our wedding in August 2006. Thus, these guides are for visitors who're in Chicago for just a day or two. And some of the information, particularly about things to do, is dated. The restaurant recommendations, however, have a longer life-span.
