Urbanization is a trend that will continue to occur as an ongoing process. The urban rural continuum is a complex one that has the city at one end and the country on the other. According to discussion in class different settlements can be placed on any point on this continuum; and the factors that dictate where the settlement may fall on this urban/rural continuum do change form a place to another and a settlement to another. In the case of Chicago, and according to Cronon, describe in one page the factors that contributed to its transformation on the urban-rural continuum. These can be: locational, social, economical, infrastructure, transportation, and many more. You may upload photos or diagrams to illustrate your ideas.
In your 2nd page, and based on the Robert Mugerauer chapter, focusing on the city only, elaborate how tourism influence the development of the city and if it actually contributes to further urbanization within the same city.
