Recommend for weekend Chicago activity - We toured the cemetery on a nice day, very glad I went. The tour wasn't too difficult, it was nice to see all the people who go to the cemetery for different reasons and I found a couple of spots that I definitely will go back to to picnic or hang out. The walk was not difficult, a manageable speed, and I learned a lot about Chicago history and architecture/design in general. If you are an architecture need, well worth your time. I am a native to the city and I learned so much about how the city came to be, makes you look at things a different way.
