Chicago Boystown Tour!

My friend Margaret last year started her own tour guide company, Chicago Elevated. Along with her awesome tours, she has an equally awesome blog about neat Chicago facts and history.

Her newest tour is one of Boystown, which was the first neighborhood I lived in when I moved to Chicago. Fuzzy and I went on the tour last weekend, and having walked down Halsted Street literally HUNDREDS of times, it was really great to see things in a new way and learn the history behind having it be the country's first offically recognized gay neighborhood. Margaret is so fun and personable, the information she gives you never feels like a lecture or a history lesson. It is obvious that she loves what she does, and it comes out in the tour. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours on a gorgeous afternoon, and you get to have wine, too!

The Boystown Tour was also written about here. More info about the tour is found here.

Yeah! I highly recommend going if you live here or are are planning a visit to Chicago.
Go, Hixx, go!
