Virtual Chicago

"It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago - she outgrows his prophecies faster than he can make them. She is always a novelty; for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time"
Mark Twain "Life On The Mississippi," 1883

Whether you are a new resident or a lifelong Chicagoan like myself, there is always something to discover here.

Here are a few of my favorite websites that report on, explore, challenge and inspire Chicagoans or anyone who loves this City:
  • Chicagoist -A great all around website for everything Chicago
  • ChicagoNow - Some of the best bloggers in the City
  • Chicago is the World -A mix of news and exploration
  • Chicago Public Library - Explore the collections, find exhibits, research and more
  • Daily Candy -This website has gotten better with time, a Chicago girl must
