Flights To Chicago

All roads lead to Chicago. The Windy City was the birthplace of the skyscraper and today it’s full of historical sites of Industrial America, rich foods and an artsy, bluesy culture. All of that is wrapped in a working-class mentality, like a Chicago dog is wrapped in in a bun. Pack your guitar (and your antacids) and get ready for Chicago!

Getting Around Chicago

Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD) is one of the largest in the world. You can catch the Blue Line train into “The Loop”, or the main part of the city. There are also buses and taxis that will pick you up at the airport. Downtown is very walkable, and there is even an underground system of tunnels that helps you get around no matter what the weather is outside. Want to feel the wind in your hair? Check out Wotif’s car hire options and put the pedal to the metal.

When You Land…

Are you on one of the flights to Chicago that arrives in the morning? Sweet! There are plenty of museums for you to explore all day long in the Museum Campus. Check out the Field Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Science and Industry, and the Art Institute of Chicago.

If afternoon Chicago flights leave you with a grumbling tummy, find the nearest hot dog cart and order yourself a Chicago dog. But for the love of all that’s Chicagoan, don’t you dare apply any ketchup!

If you land after dark, head downtown and check out all the brightly-lit skyscrapers before checking into Chicago hotels.

Live Like a Local
