Soaring skyscrapers, deep-dish pizza, and improv comedy might be what Chicago is best known for, but those icons are only a drop in the bucket of things that make the city extraordinary. Chicago’s history may not be long, but it’s certainly been colorful and impactful. And as its story continues to unfold, there’s always something new to discover and explore. This second edition of 100 Things to Do in Chicago Before You Die, Special Edition promises an authentic taste of the Windy City, full of well-known spots and hidden gems alike.

Discover which popular sweet treat was born in the pastry kitchen of a famous Chicago hotel. Visit a recording studio where the legendary Muddy Waters laid down tracks. Ride a manually-operated elevator to browse specialty shops in a century-old building. Pay a visit to a collaborative community reimagining waste as a resource. It’s time to get beyond what you’ve heard about this city and experience the real Chicago. This candid insider’s guide is a bucket list to get you exploring like a local, even if you’re only in town for a few days.

Whether it’s your first visit or you consider Chicago home, 100 Things to Do in Chicago Before You Die, Special Edition shows you these things must be on your to-do list. As you cross off each one, you’re sure to learn something new and have a lot of fun in the process.
