Your Guide to Chicago, IL

Chicago, Illinois is a great place to visit no matter if you’re traveling for business or leisure. As the biggest Midwestern city in the United States, a shortage of things to do simply does not exist in Chicago. However, you will need your own set of wheels to see not only downtown but Chicago’s surrounding areas. When you rent a car in Chicago, it will be yours for the taking.

Arguably the most notable feature of the city is the Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower. Located downtown, the Willis Tower is one of the tallest buildings in North America. Once you’ve craned your neck to see the site, visit other notable Chicago attractions such as the John Hancock Tower, Navy Pier, and Grant Park. However, walking to these destinations can eat up your vacation time and trying to navigate public transportation can be a hassle.

Outside of the inner city is Lincoln Park, the largest public park in Chicago, IL. Lincoln Park is home to museums, a zoo, a nature sanctuary, and a number of public, outdoor spaces. Additionally, Lincoln Park also offers breathtaking views of the city. Pack a picnic if weather permits, if not, bundle up and take a walk through the crisp cool air. Nearby the park, you’ll discover some of the city’s best boutiques and restaurants. Go ahead and let yourself indulge, you are on vacation after all. Afterward, you’ll find that your rental car is the perfect place to stash your shopping bags.
