Travel

Directions from the Blackstone Hotel for the above Events:

Those in Blackstone are in a prime location, on Michigan Avenue across from Grant Park.
However, you will have further to walk for the sessions and the events, with the exception of
those attending Buddy Guy‘s Legends. Buddy Guy‘s is 1/10th of a mile away. Go south on S.
Michigan Avenue, and turn right on E. Balbo Street, and just walk up to Wabash. For those
walking from Blackstone to the Berghoff Restaurant, it is 7/10 of a mile. You could take E.
Balbo Avenue west to State Street and then walk north on State until you reach West Adams, and
then turn west (left) on Adams. Alternatively, walk north on Michigan Avenue until you come to Adams Street. Turn west (left) on Adams, and walk 2 ½ blocks to the Berghoff Restaurant. To
travel to Rock Bottom (on Friday), it will be approximately 1½ miles. We encourage you to walk
first to the Palmer House and then follow the directions from there or join the groups. To walk
from the Blackstone Hotel to the Cultural Center on Sunday, just walk north on Michigan
Avenue until you come to the intersection of Michigan and Washington St. (8/10 of a mile). You
may also refer to Google Maps for interactive maps of the area.
