  • I have only checked out the recent extension walkway, but it is a great place to take a walk and see a small area of nature in the city. Great view of the skyline as well.
  • Beautiful Park in Chicago to park and take a stroll along the lake. They are making some improvements and adding some things as the years go by. It just keeps getting better! Parking rates are VERY reasonable here compared to the rest of the city also! Take advantage of this nice area close to the Planetarium.
  • It was a nice airport and it should have stayed an airport.
  • Came and when a terrible rainstorm came through the venue didn't have any place to seek shelter or a means to get people to safety.
  • Cool venue. Great city view.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
