Participants can visit 20 public places around the downtown Waukegan area on the tour. Many of the sites featured played prominent roles in Ray Bradbury's childhood, helping prepare him for writing fantasy and science fiction. For more information, click on the links below:

Back in the day, I had to request a map from the city, then send it to Ray to mark significant spots!
