Explore the city in a new way with Field Trip

We live for the thrill of discovery.

We've found a kindred spirit in Field Trip, Google's new (and free) smartphone app, which is now loaded with Tasting Table's edible, drinkable finds.

The app gathers content from like-minded publications to create the most comprehensive travel guide around. Intel is culled from dozens of partners across the U.S. and the UK, including Time Out, Zagat, Atlas Obscura and Arcadia Publishing, in addition to yours truly.

As you stroll the city, the Field Trip map is updated with points of potential interest: museums, galleries, historic places, boutiques, notable architecture, restaurants and more, both on the beaten path and off.

Break it out when you have time to kill in the Gold Coast, and you may find yourself touring the Driehaus Museum before popping into Drumbar for a top-notch cocktail. In Bridgeport, you'll discover hidden galleries and historic houses, plus craft beer at Maria's and killer Chinese at Northern City.

Wandering around Logan Square? Gaslight coffee will fuel explorations of City Lit Books and Galerie F.

It's never been so easy to be a tourist in your own town.
