"Time Out Chicago" is comprehensive, portable, 'user friendly', and an ideal trip planning resource. Apr 2, 2008
Chicago is a terrific place to visit whether for business or for pleasure, for a weekend or a week. For those who live in or around the Windy City, it's possible to spend every day of the year exploring its sights and cultural resources. But whether a casual traveler or a interested resident, taking full advantage of what Chicago has to offer will require an expert travel guide and resource manual -- and that's where "Time Out: Chicago" truly comes into its own. This 336-page compilation of information begins with a succinct overview of the city's history, architecture, politics, music, and sports. Then it goes on to feature places to go, things to do, sights to see, events to participate in, that will keep the vacationer or resident happily occupied with experience the very best that the city has to offer from fine dining, to memorable accommodations, diverse recreations, and so much more. Enhanced with photographs, maps, and recommendations for day trips out of town, "Time Out Chicago" is comprehensive, portable, 'user friendly', and an ideal trip planning resource. Also very highly recommended as a companion guide is "Time Out Chicago: Eating & Drinking" (9780979398438, $9.99) which focuses specifically on 1500 of the city's best restaurants and bars.
excellent help for travelling Feb 13, 2008
I recently discovered the Time Out guides when travelling to Buenos Aires last November. If you have gone thru the backpacking stage, Time Out gives you accurate information about restaurants, shopping and hotels, and it does not mean you have to go the expensive way. Maps are intuitive and easy to use and the guide structure allows you to find what you are looking for whithout the annoying feeling I've had with other guides.
