Things to see

I am going to be in Alsip for a three days this week and was wondering, since I have never been to the area before, what I could see during the day. Does anyone have suggestions as to tours I may take or the possibility of me driving somewhere. I am single so I want to be sure I am doing to the correct areas.

Are you looking for something to do in the Alsip area? Or something downtown during the day? What are your particular interests?

Well since I will have most of the day to myself I thought I would do some site seeing. I may have a car so I do not want to drive to far. I like interesting sites dont mind walking. I may also have an evening to check out the nightlife.

Assuming you're staying in Alsip and want to play tourist downtown, you can avoid the driving and parking hassles and take the Metra train downtown. Visit www.metrarail.com for details.

Here's a local link for Alsip - http://www.alsip.il.us/

The problem is there is not much around alsip.

And some of the areas range from OK to sketchy. In that area.

So around there:

In Homewood, there is the original aurelios pizza. Great Pizza.

http://www.aureliospizza.com/

It will be a 30-40 min drive. (Everything in chicago is a 30-40 min drive)

In Palos Park, there is the plush horse. famous ice cream parlor.

If your young enough, there is 115 burbon street. bar/restaurant/music venu.

By the way, just got back from a visit to san fran. so watch for the trip report. ;-)

Thank you greg for the great info. It will help in my quest to keep the day busy. I look forward to see your report on SF. I hope you had a little bit of nice weather on your visit before the rains came.
