Competition amongst the web portals means all the more ways to get regional information that's useful to you -- in other words, there's an increasing number of alternatives to the original, Citysearch. Following Google's Local service, Yahoo! has revised its area-specific content into a new beta site, offering another way to track down details on events, services, traffic and other facets of life in Chicago. Of additional note: if you're a parent, GoCityKids offers a guide tailored to entertaining, educating and exploring the city with your children.
