Chicagoans have a reputation for being opinionated
folks. As a group, we aren't afraid to speak out on everything from
local politics to hometown sports teams and the best spots to grab
deep-dish pizza and Chicago-style hot dogs.
But we adults aren't the only ones who love to dish on
what makes Chicago such a great city. Our kids have plenty to say
about their hometown, too.
Chicago Parent assembled a panel of 12 Chicago-area kids
between the ages of 7 and 14 from both the city and the `burbs. We
asked them to share their favorite hometown spots, thoughts on how
we could improve our city, best local eats and more.
Turns out that these kids have lots of reasons to love the
city they call home (and plenty of ideas on what we can do to make
it a better place for future generations of Chicagoans).
