Sightseeing: One of Chicago's most unique neighborhoods, Chinatown offers Far Eastern charm in the Midwest. Featuring scores of terrific Chinese and Cantonese restaurants and bakeries, the neighborhood has a special place in the hearts (and stomachs) of folks who visit. Shoppers also enjoy cozy, family-owned bookstores and gift shops. If you're lucky, you'll visit Chinatown during one of its lively festival and perhaps even the colorful Chinese New Year celebration. Within Chinatown is Ping Tom Memorial Park which isn't easy to find but worth the effort. Ask for directions and once you find the entrance you'll be transported to a quiet sanctuary filled with wildflowers, willow trees, trails and the Chicago River. There is a water taxi stop which visitors can pickup and head into the Chicago Loop.
