Here at last is the perfect answer to that tired question, "What should we do this weekend?" Chicago-area natives themselves, the Guteks describe over 80 family outings to suit all tastes and ages. Chicago is a lively, cosmopolitan city. It is also a midwestern city, with close ties to the American heartlands. Descriptions of museums, state parks, historic houses, botanical gardens, museum villages, and wildlife preserves include fascinating historical background. Hours, fees, facilities, handicapped accessibility, and directions from Chicago are fully detailed; and for those sites which would occupy a whole weekend, overnight accommodations are suggested.
