About Greg Roberts:

Greg has Chicago running through his veins. Greg’s family has roots on the Northwest side of Chicago going back to the 1800’s. Although Greg was born in Arizona while his family relocated out west for work, he and part of his family made their way back to Chicago.

“I was raised by a very Chicago family but out West. We spent a lot of time on roadtrips and by the time I was 10 I saw just about every roadside attraction West of the Mississippi! I spend plenty of time in California and clocked in a hundred or so visits to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. Shortly after I turned 10 I made my way home, to Chicago.”

“This is where my heart, soul and body belong. I am very passionate about this city. I want to share my knowledge with visitors, new residence, folks that have lived here all there lives, everyone in between and anyone else who will listen!”

There is so much to see and do here. I want you to get the what’s what from a Chicagoian. Visit here like someone who lives here. Know what you are seeing and why it’s there. Visit places that are not in your typical top 10 lists. If you are going to spend your day at Millennium park I at least want for you to see more than just the Bean!

Come with me on a tour of the Second City, The Windy City, The City In A Garden: Chicago, where I call home. (We’ll cover all those silly nick names too!)
