I grew up in Rogers Park on the northern end of the City have lived in Chicago my entire life. My partner Chris actor/tour bus guide/concierge moved from Columbus Ohio and when we met 9 years ago it was kismet. We love the city and all that it has to offer. Our home is on a quiet street about 3 miles from the central business district in Chicago a short bus ride away to the Magnificent Mile. A three day bus pass is $20 can be purchased at any Walgreen's, CVS, or grocery store and that's all you need to visit all Chicago attractions including Navy Pier, State Street and Michigan Avenue. Great neighborhoods are under two miles walk or bus to Bucktown, Wicker Park, Taylor Street and Pilsen. Plenty of free street parking during your visit if you drive.
