Hi! My name's Theresa, and I'm the founder and publisher of The Local Tourist and Your Chicago Guide.
For eighteen years, I've been telling people where to go. I've sent out a weekly newsletter for about fifteen of them, highlighting places to go and things to do. For the past year, I've also sent out Wanderlust Wednesday, providing travel tips and inspiration.
We've always been a free resource funded by ads and ticket purchases, and those aren't really a thing right now. As you can imagine, we've taken a huge hit.
If you enjoy the weekly newsletter and the events calendar and all of the content on Your Chicago Guide (formerly The Local Tourist Chicago), if you enjoy my in-depth stories about beautiful and quirky destinations on The Local Tourist, would you consider buying me a coffee? It would help keep me going during this truly uncertain time.
