I'm Amy Bizzarri, a freelance writer focused on family, food, and fun, with a special interest in family adventure travel, Route 66, vintage/retro travel and green/eco-friendly destinations, both in the US and abroad. My Great, Great Great Grandparents met on the night the Chicago fire hit our city: Walter Daker, a volunteer firefighter caught a glimpse of Catherine's long flowing red hair and thought it was on fire ... swooped her up in his arms to "save" her...and the rest is history! I'm the author of three Chicago history focused books: Discovering Vintage Chicago (Rowman, 2015), Chicago's Iconic Dishes, Drinks and Desserts (American Palate Series / The History Press, 2016) and 111 Places Chicago (emons Verlag, 2017). This tour promises to take you back in time to 19th century Chicago and features excerpts from my latest book, 111 Places in Chicago That You Must Not Miss. If you'd like to explore more hidden corners of Chicago, check out 111 Places in Chicago That You Must Not Miss from your local library, bookstore or online book retailer today!
