Be a tourist in your own city. There's a ton of walking tours available in Chicago. Slip into some comfortable shoes and learn arcane facts about the city. The Chicago Historical Society offers neighborhood tours on Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. and Mondays at 1:00 p.m. for $10. The Chicago Architecture Foundation conducts walking and bus tours on the weekends and most walking tours cost between $5-15.
