Walk in Chicago # 8, Ravenswood, Graceland and Buena Park, explores 3 different areas in the north of the city, one rather artistic, the other calm and venerable, the last classified as historic.


If you follow what the map shows you, it will be about 3 miles but if you want to explore the Graceland Cemetery in more detail, take a Divvy Bike (you will need to download the application to be able to rent it) as the cemetery has no direct exit to Buena Park and its main entrance on W. Irving Park Rd is currently closed (August 2023). This bike will also come in handy if you want to continue your exploration further east to popular beaches or sports grounds, or start it off by visiting some of Ravenswood's breweries.


This walk is in any case the opportunity to stroll through neighborhoods far from the beaten track and to discover unexpected places such as, among others, one of the oldest artists' cooperatives in the city, a romantic pond in the middle of astonishing tombs and some of the finest Prairie-style houses in the city. You’ll also learn something about the origins of Labor Day!

The pdf is 7 pages long, has a clickable map showing you the way, detailed explanations of what you will see and is illustrated with 8 photos taken on location.

It's a portable guide that allow you to remain independent and visit the city at your own pace.
