As we get closer to the Eastland 100th Anniversary, here are some thoughts (from me!) on how we honor & how we don’t: http://ow.ly/PEPpX
One hundred years ago the Eastland tipped over and killed 844 people. We honor this disaster, what about our other ones?

The Pedway is more than just a series of walkways, it’s one of our neighborhoods: http://ow.ly/PfbO2
The Chicago Pedway is a strange and wonderful place, so strange and wonderful, I think it counts as a neighborhood.

Got a nice lil quote in the @chicagotribune today about the pedway! People are still figuring it out for sure. Love. http://ow.ly/OCKTr
I got a phone call last week from Barbara Brotman, a journalist from the Trib. She was so excited because she found a precious link from the lower half of the Michigan Ave bridge to the Pedway. I was excited for her, I know how delicious pedway discoveries can be! We talked a bit and voila!

I hopped on the Hawks bandwagon and you should too. We all should. Here’s why bandwagons rule: http://www.chicagoelevated.com/blog/
The Blackhawks win! Yes, yes, the Blackhawks win. HAWKS. I'm not going to lie to you fine people, I am not really a sports person. I watched Jordan pretty religiously when that happened, but that's about it. I know enough to know enough to give tours. I understand about billygoats, Bartmans and ...

YAY! @TheSecondCity made the list of the 5 Must See tours in the Trib! There’s some doozy pics of me, hilarious: http://ow.ly/PnX1E
Summer in Chicago often feels like the season of big-ticket items — from Grateful Dead farewell concerts to Taste of Chicago to Lollapalooza . But get away from the crowds, and the land, and you can find hidden pockets of Chicago history and architecture while still enjoying the summer weather. Here are just a few tours tailor-made for introducing visitors to our town — and for reminding natives why we live here.

I eat walking tours: http://ow.ly/O9drl
I'm so silly, I get my schedule all worked out for summer – I pore over calendars to figure out which tour would work best at which time – make sure that each tour is represented – make sure the IDEAL time is set for that tour, and then, as soon as I do it and send out listings and press ...

Hey I'm Margaret,tour guide, comedian, author and lover of all things Chicago. Chicago Elevated is dedicated to giving the best walking tours in Chicago. I have scheduled tours in the warmer months, like the Disaster! Tour and the Binoculars Tour. In the winter months I do the all-indoor Pedway Tour, where you never go outside. I also do private tours and customized or group tours too!

Check out Chicago Elevated for specific times, etc.
