Walk this way: Chicago

Walkability: Definitely a city to discover on foot. Though you will need to take transit to get between neighbourhoods, there is plenty to see downtown and on the waterfront.
Public Transit: Taking the "L" (elevated subway trains) downtown is a must, just to get a different perspective. There is an extensive and efficient bus and subway system that should be able to cover everything you want to see. (800) YOUR CTA;
Taxi or rental? Taxis are a good choice to hit the dining and entertainment options in Near North Side, Old Town and Lincoln Park, and they're easy to hail in most central locations.
Where to: Head to River North, an old warehouse district that now has many of the city's hottest restaurants, nightspots and art galleries. Walk along the river on South Wacker Drive to experience the canyon of skyscrapers or stroll the crescent of sand of Oak Street Beach.
Water works: The "RiverBus" runs daily from April through October between Madison Street (near the Sears Tower) and River East Plaza, near the lake. The ride is US$2 each way and takes about 10 minutes. (312) 337-1446;
