About The Local Tourist

For over a decade The Local Tourist has been one of the most popular and respected resources for things to do and places to go in Chicago. We’ve established a reputation as the go-to source for entertainment options in the Windy City, providing curated content and trustworthy recommendations so that both locals and tourists find it easy to plan their Chicago experience. We're now expanding our reach to help you be a "local tourist" no matter where you are! In addition to our comprehensive Chicago resources, you'll soon be able to find recommendations of places to go and things to do all over. (If you're interested in sharing your local love, please fill out our guest post form!)
