H&G To Do List has a few suggestions for field trips. We blogged their first suggestion a few weeks ago, the Bungalow/Green Home expo, but thought you'd appreciate the reminder as it's coming up this Saturday.
They also suggest the Chicago Cavalcade of Homes set for October 7th, a day of tours of homes, townhomes and condos for sale across the city. The five tours (north, midsouth, near west, southeast, and far south) all begin at UIC.
