Lonely Planet Chicago City Guide

       iOS iPhone

"...Lonely Planet for honesty, history, irreverence and budget." -- Esquire Magazine

Breeze through the Windy City, with Lonely Planet’s Chicago City Guide on your iPhone. If you want more from your time in the capital of the Midwest than a happy-snap of the Sears Tower, an amble through Millennium Park, and a cruise on Lake Michigan, then you’ll need the world’s leading guidebook publisher in your hip pocket. Our three expert authors have condensed over 1800 hours of research into this essential guide, so you won’t miss a trick.

Imagine you’ve spent the day rummaging through vintage stores in Wicker Park, and want to find somewhere great to park your bags and refuel. Or you’ve scoured the galleries of West Loop, and want to crank things up a notch in the local bars. With our dynamic, intelligent maps, you can pinpoint your location, then filter and browse the best venues nearby. Or perhaps you’ve devoured our chapters on Chicago’s history, culture and art scene, but need to add detail to the picture? Simply scroll through a gallery of high-res images, taken by our acclaimed photographers, and let your imagination loose. Sensational!


Imagine taking the world's favourite guidebook and making the information interactive, personalised and fully searchable. Imagine dynamic maps that plot your exact location, guiding you through the quirky, the curious and the straight-up compulsory experiences recommended by our community of on-the-road authors and users. Now imagine that guidebook on your iPhone, with you wherever you travel. Well, imagine no more: the world's favourite guidebook has just arrived on the world's favourite phone.
