    What does everyone make of this? Having visited the city on a number of occasions i'm sad because it really is a great city to visit. Given the high number of murders, shootings etc is the warning warranted or is it an overrecation? Interested to hear from everyone but especially from posters who live or grew up in the Chicago.
    Every city has it's hot zones, where life is cheap. Chi-Town's murder rate is proof that it's no different.

    I don't blame France one bit about issueing warnings like this.

    There are a lot more American cities besides Chicago that foreign governments warn their people not to visit. Interestingly, they're are all under Liberal rule. Places such as Detroit, parts of Miami, Los Angeles, etc., etc. Just because the ghetto danger in America is kept secret by the media doesn't mean the rest of the world doesn't know about it.

    Having experienced the French enough for one lifetime, this may actually be a boon for Chicago tourism - if people know they're unlikely to run into French tourists in Chicago, it moves well up the list of places to visit.

    I urge the French to visit Chicago - particularly the south side. In NYC, streets in the 140 type numbered streets and up are also excellent. Detroit holds promise - especially at this time of year. East St. Louis is an attraction any time of year.

    Perhaps Chicago wanted this and paid the French government the necessary graft to get er done. French tourists, not high on the list of a city's needs.

    mmm I think any tourists are welcomes by all cities especially from a country with a decent population size who frequently travel to North America.

    I was born and raised in Chicago and live here now. There are neighborhoods I'd never visit, however there are areas of every city I'd avoid. My advice for anyone visiting Chi-Town these days is do whatever you can to avoid taking the Red Line

    I grew up in Chicago, I love the city, but the south side is a **** hole. It's pretty dangerous and there's no desire by Chicago government to fix it. But if you stick to the north side, you'll be OK.

    The South Side is a huge place. There are areas of the South side that are just as nice as Lincoln Park or Lakeview . Beverly being just one.
