The Local Tourist is Ten and You Get the Gifts!

Save the date and buy your ticket today...


Each Passport comes complete with a CTA day pass and one free ride from Uber, the new car service that’s taken Chicago by storm. Those who purchase their passports in advance will also get an “I’m A Local Tourist” sling bag for free.

Passport To Chicago also provides exclusive access to the Official After Party. Chicago hot spot Public House is hosting the event with a complimentary premium cocktail and offering their late night menu at half-price. Attendees will mix and mingle with TLT’s host committee, a collection of some of Chicago’s most influential people,
including ChiIL Mama.

The celebration doesn’t end there.  This all-inclusive package is just $35. For more information on TLTen and Passport To Chicago, including beneficiary charities and businesses, visit

Over the last ten years The Local Tourist has grown from a business directory of River North into a comprehensive resource that covers the neighborhoods of Chicago and beyond. Millions have visited the site to figure out places to go and things to do. Robust content is added daily by the TLTeam of contributors, by businesses posting information about what they offer, and by locals and tourists sharing their valuable opinions, comments, and photos.

To celebrate a decade online, The Local Tourist is inviting visitors and residents to tour Chicago like a Local Tourist with “Passport To Chicago”. On June 3 they’ll enjoy exclusive events and deals at destinations all over Chicago, getting their pages stamped at each place they visit.

There are so many places to go and things to do that there's no way to do them all in one day. That's why the Passport To Chicago is good for a whole year! From June 4, 2012 to May 31, 2013, these businesses are offering even more special discounts.

All of this exploring is also for a good cause. The Local Tourist is donating a portion of every Passport to participating local charities!

What:  A Roving Celebration of all things Chicago! Each “Local Tourist” will receive a Passport To Chicago and will travel the city, getting pages stamped at each place they visit.

When:  June 3, 2012 “Destinations” all over Chicago!
The day culminates with an awesome after party at Public House
Beginning June 4 attendees will bring their Passport To Chicago to participating locations for special discounts or privileges!

Each passport comes with a fold-out map of participating venues, a description of each venue’s offer, and a CTA day pass. Uber will also provide each attendee with a ride in their car service.

Each Passport purchased online receives a free “I’m A Local Tourist” sling bag.
A portion of every passport is being donated to local charities that have been featured on Charity Chat!
