Whether you've lived here since the first Mayor Daley was "the Boss" or you've just arrived from a small college to live in the big city, you'll have an enlightening time on a Chicago Greeter tour. Why did the Swedes settle in Andersonville and who this Anderson anyway? Tour the Old World neighborhood of Ukrainian Village filled with Eastern European restaurants and glorious churches like Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathedral which was designed by Louis Sullivan in 1899. The free, guided walks are led by local Chicagoans and the free, year-round service takes you to wherever your interests lie. See pubic art in Pilsen or learn about Lincoln Park. Greeter visits are offered in over a dozen languages, too.
