First family sites in Hyde Park, Kenwood, and South Shore. Chicago is the adopted hometown of President Barack Obama, who gained his political bona fides, started his family and launched himself into the White House from the South Side. There are a smattering of Obama-related sites in other areas of the city. This walking tour contains the University of Chicago on the South Side is where you will get a feel for who he was and how he lived before moving to the White House.

Easiest to take Uber to Hyde Park to his home address probably or to the University of Chicago Law School. Fun walk, friendly neighborhood. We did maybe half of it.
