Bizarre Chicago, run by Bucktown-Wicker Park resident Gordon Meyer, offers unique and entertaining neighborhood walking tours. The top-rated and popular small-group tours focus on forgotten history, unexplained mysteries, and ghost stories.

Western Avenue is the longest continuous city street in the world. How long you wonder? 24.5 miles to be precise. As the name might suggest, this street delineated the original western boundary of Chicago. (Nearby North Ave was the original northern boundary.)
