UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - CHICAGO
Global Traveler|July 2021
Chicago’s location in the heart of the Midwest makes it a popular destination for meetings and conventions and an ideal home for corporate headquarters, but it offers so much to the leisure traveler, as well.

Shop along the Magnificent Mile, attend world-class theatrical productions and enjoy the nightlife at music and comedy clubs. Marinas, parks and trails ring the shore of Lake Michigan for active recreation, or take in a pro hockey, football, basketball or baseball game. Museums abound, but one of the city’s biggest draws is food. From its iconic deep-dish pizza to ethnic cuisine to Michelin-starred fare, the Windy City proves a foodie paradise.

GETTING THERE & AROUND

Chicago is a major hub for both national and international travel, served by O’Hare (18 miles west of downtown) and Midway (13 miles south) international airports. The Chicago Transit Authority operates robust bus and “L” train service (eight lines). Purchase unlimited ride passes ranging from one up to 30 days. Rideshares and taxis are plentiful, or opt for the city’s bike-share program, Divvy, with more than 600 stations across the city at $15 for a day pass.
