If you often travel to new cities and take tours you will know that touring is not cheap. Especially not when you’re on a fairly small tour that’s being lead by a passionate local. Well now my pal Arthur Frommer just told me that Chicago has just become the first city in the country to offer free hour-long tours of the city. And not only are they free but you don’t need to make a reservation weeks ahead of time!
You know what that means? That you should all visit Chicago, of course!
Alright, you don’t have to come immediately. But should you plan a visit for the first time do checkout ExploreChicago.org and learn a little bit about getting a free tour of the city. The tours appear to only be available on the weekends and meet at the Chicago Cultural Center’s Visitor Information Center.
