Chicago travel tips

Best time to visit Chicago

Chicago’s best time to visit is April – May or September – October. The temperatures are warm and you have plenty of festivals with minimal tourist crowds.

Getting around Chicago

Chicago is big on offering convenient public transportation. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) offers a system that spans throughout downtown and 40 communities via rail and bus. A single fare on a reloadable Ventra Card is $2.25 USD for the rail and $2.00 USD for the bus. Unlimited ride passes are available too, starting at $10 USD for 1-day and $28 USD for a CTA 7-day Pass. Taxis are available in downtown, and they charge a base rate of $3.25 USD plus $2.25 USD per mile and $0.20 USD for every 36-second time lapse; therefore, their rates can be costly in high traffic times. If you prefer to drive yourself, explore momondo for attractive car rental deals.

Where to stay in Chicago

Best places to stay in Chicago

Some of the tallest buildings in North America, the starting point of the historic Route 66, the home of the Chicago Cubs (Wrigley Field), a Broadway in Chicago show, or simply to take a selfie with The Bean—no matter why you come to visit and what you want to see and do, Chicago promises to be a trip like none other. It is by no means a small city, however. In fact, the United States Census Bureau ranks it the third largest city in the U.S. housing more than 2.5 million residents. Chicago has branched out into 77 separate community areas and spans more than 200 square miles. On your visit to what is popularly known as the “Windy City”, you will find it useful to be aware of the essential six “sides” and then decide on the perfect place to stay.

North Side

The North Side is the most popular for newcomers to the city. This part of Chicago has the River North region, trendy restaurants and clubs, and an upscale area for nightlife. It is also home to the LGBTQ community and the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Hotels on the North Side worth considering include Loews Chicago Hotel, Kimpton Hotel Palomar, and the AC hotel by Marriott Chicago Downtown.

South Side

The South Side is the adopted home of former US president, Barack Obama. It is also home to the Chicago White Sox baseball team, the historic areas of Chicago’s downtown, and colorful Chinatown. Here you find more upscale hotels, including Hyatt Regency McCormick Place and the Chicago South Loop Hotel.

West Side

Wicker Park is technically part of the West Side, but some North Side residents claim ownership too. Also, the infamous Humboldt Park and the Puerto Rican neighborhoods reside on the West Side. Within walking distance, you have the Garfield Park Conservatory, and you can easily walk to the Green Line L. However, most tourists tend to avoid staying on the West Side; instead, they prefer to visit during the day.

Far South Side

The Far South Side is another unique neighborhood that has the Historic Pullman Foundation. The area is known for being a utopian workers’ community, but still has some areas that are not recommended for tourists. Therefore, as a tourist, you are unlikely to find too many suitable hotels here. You are better off staying on the outskirts at hotels like The Wheeler Mansion or the Best Western Grant Park Hotel.

Northwest and Southwest Sides

These areas are predominantly residential, but you can tour the neighborhood to see beautiful, historic brick homes built in the early 1900s. The neighborhoods are a melting pot of ethnic backgrounds and home to some excellent eateries. Hotels on the Northwest side include Renaissance Chicago O’Hare Suites by Marriott Hotel, Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport, Chicago Marriott O’Hare, Best Western Plus Hawthorne Terrace Hotel, and The Guesthouse Hotel. On the Southwest Side, you can find hotels sprinkled along the route to and from the airport, including Quality Inn Midway Airport, Hyatt Place Chicago Midway Airport, and Holiday Inn Express & Suites Chicago-Midway Airport.

Cheap hotels in Chicago

Budget-friendly hotels are throughout downtown and the outskirts. When looking for the best place to stay in Chicago that will not cost too much, there are a few options available for under $100 per night. Raffaello Hotel is an upscale 4-star hotel, but extremely affordable. Also, the Hotel Felix is a chic, budget-friendly stay at a unique structure with reclaimed wood and metal used in the construction. Congress Plaza Hotel offers a comfortable stay and is conveniently located downtown.

Learn about attractions and sights in Chicago

Chicago has plenty of free and cheap attractions. When considering your itinerary, add a few of the following to your list:

  • Make a trip to Millennium Park. Here you have 24.5 acres of features, including the serpentine bridge, the 110-ton Cloud Gate, fountains, and changing exhibits year-round.
  • Tour the Art Institute of Chicago. More than 300,000 pieces are on display and range from the period of antiquity to modern contemporary art. For touring exhibits, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art. Live performances and film screenings are hosted weekly at this museum.
  • Catch a game at the famous Wrigley Field. If you visit outside of baseball season, there are tours and activities hosted year-round.
  • It is worth visiting the 360 Chicago, known as the John Hancock Observatory originally. Here you have an interactive tour, sights, and excellent dining.
  • Catch a show at the Second City where you see sketch and improvised comedy routines by some of the best local comedians.
