Aptly named the Windy City, Chicago shares a border with expansive Lake Michigan, boasting a plethora of water sports, a waterfront speckled with beach volleyball courts, and an impressive Navy Pier. Chicago is known for its unrivalled American architecture and the best way to take in the beauty of the city is on one of the many available river cruise tours. Also found in Chicago: sports. There's always a game to be seen in Chicago, and this city has some of the best sports bars around. Once you're finished taking in the culture and the excitement, Chicago's nightlife is both lively and unique, dotted with spots like duelling piano bars. Whatever your preference, you can find it in one of America's largest metropolises.
You can find us at Terminal 5 at O'Hare International Airport.
Public transit in Chicago is both easy to use and very affordable.

For visitors in the summer looking to cruise around downtown, Chicago has a bike share program called Divvy Bikes. Starting at $3.50 for a single ride, it's a great way to see the lake and get some exercise at the same time.
Chicago has the third most professional sports teams in the U.S., and almost all of the stadiums are very well-located within the city. If you're into sports, make sure you check schedules ahead of your visit, and try and score a deal on tickets before you arrive. If sports are not your thing, never fear - this stunning city is home to several nationally renowned museums and galleries.
Chicago is a really large city, and there are many different great neighbourhoods to find accommodations in. It's a good idea to have a sense of what you want to do in the city, and pic a hotel or vacation-rental property that's centrally located so that you can take advantage of the walkability of the city.
Our first tip for saving money in Chicago - skip the taxis and Ubers! The transit system is both convenient and affordable, and pretty much accessible anywhere in the city. Like most big American cities, fine dining in Chicago is very, very impressive. But for those not looking to splurge, Chicago's fast casual dining and street food scene are raved about. From pizza and hot dogs to pretzels and pop corn, there are some decadent eats to be enjoyed without breaking the bank. If you're visiting in the summer, one of Chicago's best assets is 100% free - the lake. Chicago's downtown is nestled adjacent to beautiful boardwalks and sandy beaches, and the crisp, clear waters of Lake Michigan. Take a bike ride, take a stroll, jump into a game of beach volleyball, and take it all in.
