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.

Busy at times but well worth the number of people for the views of the lake & city!

Very easy, but loved the dedicated bike lane which majority of joggers and walkers understand and obey. Lake Michigan on one side, city on other. Total of 15 miles from start of trail (north end) to Navy pier, and back. Free street parking at Lincoln Skate Park (large pay lot available also).

Even though I'm a NY Mets fan this neighborhood is hallowed ground for National League Baseball fans. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to see the Cubbies play but I did see Phish play Wrigley. Partook in local culture at many of the countless watering holes in the neighborhood

The scenery is great
