    It of really good to get out of the bustle of the Loop to visit a historic and very well preserved. The visit is facilitated by panels explaining the role and evolution of this neighborhood in Chicago. Easy access by public transport (bus and green line). Attention: the Clarke House visits are organized and not every day, find out before you go. Tip: don't hesitate to walk around this neighborhood to see a pretty residential area as well as a neighborhood in full gentrification which promises to become the place to be pretty soon!

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area.
