Arriving in Chicago

When you land at O'Hare International Airport, you'll be just minutes away from the centre of Chicago. The airport is located at 10000 West O'Hare Avenue, just eighteen miles northwest of the downtown area, with easy access via I-90. O'Hare services more than 67 million passengers each year, and passengers continue to fly through O'Hare because it makes travel simple. Once you walk out the baggage claim door, you'll find a bevy of cabs waiting to take you into the city. Cab fares are metered, so the actual cost will depend on the amount of traffic you run into. Expect the drive to take roughly 30 minutes for an average fare of $30 to $35. The Chicago Transit Authority's "L" train is an easy and affordable way to get to the Loop, with fares starting at just $2. If you prefer to be completely mobile during your stay, you'll find ten rental car companies located at the airport with free shuttle service from the terminals to the car rental lots.

Exploring the Chicago Area

Chicago offers something for everyone, including shopping, museums, theatres, and a variety of dining options. Make time to visit the Lincoln Park Zoo, enjoy an afternoon at the Navy Pier, or ride to the top of the Willis Tower. Explore Chicago's culinary landscape, especially the foods that have made the city famous, such as Chicago hot dogs, Italian beef, and deep dish pizza. Summer is a popular time to visit Chicago, as the temperatures rarely exceed 28.8°C and the lake breezes make the days comfortable. Bring a light sweater, however, as night-time temperatures can dip to 20°C. Chicago winters can be rough, with frequent snow and temperatures that can go as low as -8°C. If you do plan to visit during these cold months, pack plenty of snow gear and warm clothing. If you prefer smaller crowds and balmy weather, head to Chicago during the early fall.

Chicago When to Go

Come summer, Chicagoans head to the beaches, parks, and festivals along Lake Michigan. A chill often lingers in the air in early summer, while late summer can be muggy. Regardless of the season, pack layers, as weather can fluctuate greatly. Summer also brings spikes in hotel rates.

Fall is pleasant until mid-November, when temperatures plunge, and spring doesn’t get reliably comfortable until late April. Anytime between May and November, you’ll be able to combine season-less indoor attractions with the convivial appeal of the outdoors at the lakefront, on Chicago River boats, and milling around Millennium Park.

Weather and prices are tradeoffs in Chicago. In January and February, the “hawk” (a local term for the harsh wind off Lake Michigan) sweeps down Michigan Avenue, and snow buries the streets. But hotel rates are bargain basement and attractions uncrowded.
