For years I've been joking that my job is telling people where to go. Now I can add "and I've got all the answers" to that description.
I am thrilled to announce that I am Answers.com's new Chicago Expert! They invited me to share my love of the Windy City with their audience and I gleefully accepted. I'll be writing articles about everything that makes this city great, using The Local Tourist as a resource, of course!
I'll be covering everything from the basics, like our public transportation system and using those parking meters we all love to hate, to more in depth topics that showcase the city's greatest assets. I've already begun posting articles, beginning with a summary of Chicago's Neighborhoods and followed by an inside look at the Field Museum, a glimpse of Buckingham Fountain, a look at Billy Goat Tavern's storied history, and a few more. Upcoming articles will explore how the Great Fire shaped the Chicago of today, why you never put ketchup on a hot dog, and the explosive growth of the craft beer scene.
When it comes to Chicago, I've got ALL the Answers (dot com)!
