Incentive-travel groups visiting Chicago can now explore the city via their cell phones with the launch of Stray Boots’ Chicago: The Game interactive tours.

Conducted through text-message exchanges, the three preliminary city tours will cover the Loop, Magnificent Mile and Navy Pier neighborhoods.

The new tours enable participants to explore three of the Windy City’s most vibrant neighborhoods on foot, at their own pace.

By capitalizing on the interactivity, ease-of-use and real-time editing capabilities of text-messaging technology, Stray Boots provides access to well-known tourist sites and attractions, and to insider, off-the-beaten-path gems.

With Stray Boots tours offered in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas, San Francisco and now Chicago, Stray Boots will expand to Los Angeles next week and Seattle, Portland, Ore., and San Diego, Calif., by fall.
