Profile of 3 apps that help you discover Chicago -- Built In Chicago


Chi-town is nothing but shy (sorry about that one) on activities for both locals and travelers to take advantage of. At any given time, there are a thousand things to do, hundreds of places to go and scores of free activities to take advantage of. However, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut — hitting the same neighborhood bar time after time and passing by a local mom & pop shop for that Subway sub just because it’s “easy and convenient”.

Understanding all that, we decided to put together a list of city guides that use technology and creativity to approach experiencing Chicago. To give some quick examples of what’s ahead, we’ll feature three apps that can help you: get the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s schedule, drink in a bar with a history richer than any VC you’re chasing, discover a place with an exclusive menu of Slim-Jims and chips, and much, much more.

Whether you want to get sauced, surprise your spouse or switch up the norm, these homegrown Chicago apps are a sure source for a good time.
