"How can I possibly be expected to handle school on a day like this?"

We've all been there, even if we're not Ferris Bueller. After your mornings stretch, you look outside at the shining sun, soft breeze, and then wonder, "How can anyone expect me to handle work on a day like this?" So take the day off! While you're at it, follow in Ferris Bueller's footsteps too as I take you through the film locations that made Ferris Bueller's Day Off such a wonderful adventure (but make sure Ed Rooney isn't on your tail).

DIY Tours: Chicago's Riverfront by Divvy Bike

River Front

Since the first 75 Divvy bike racks became operational on June 28, 2013, the city of Chicago announced that the Divvy program is the biggest in the country based on the percentage of bikes used. Over 50,000 trips were taken in the first month. Why not take advantage of the 300 plus stations already in place by taking this short tour of Chicago's north loop and riverfront. This tour will show you how to rent a Divvy bike as well as keep you in protected bike lanes and away from heavy traffic.
