Your Guide to Chicago, IL

Whether you’re traveling for business or leisure, Chicago, Illinois, is a fantastic place to visit. You’ll find no shortage of things to see and do, and you’ll need a rental car to not only cruise through the stunning downtown, but the town’s surrounding suburbs and Great Lakes area, too. When you obtain one of our cheap rental cars in Chicago, the city will be yours for the taking.

Things to Do in Chicago

Explore the Windy City in your car rental and see some of the most famous sights in the nation.

  • Willis Tower - Formerly known as the Sears Tower, it’s arguably the most notable feature in the city and one of the tallest buildings in North America. Enjoy those views from the tippy top!

  • Millennium Park – It’s one of the great gathering spots of the city, with intricate green spaces, an outdoor concert pavilion, and the famous Cloud Gate sculpture (also known as “The Bean”).

  • Navy Pier – Opened in 1916, this historic amusement park is still a favorite today. Check out the old-fashioned carousel and Ferris wheel, along with the botanical garden, theater, and restaurants that sit along the water.

Best Time to Visit Chicago

Chicago experiences four distinct seasons. If you’re visiting in spring, expect temperatures in the 50s, while you can enjoy warm, humid weather in the 70s and 80s during summer. Fall temperatures are usually in the 60s and 70s, while winter can drop down to the 30s. If you are visiting during winter, make sure you bundle up, as sunny days are a rarity and snow is a frequent companion. Don’t worry; even though Chicago is called “The Windy City,” it is not actually any windier than other American communities.

Most Popular Street in Chicago

The Magnificent Mile isn’t just a famous street in Chicago, it’s also one of the most famous streets in America. Drive your Chi-town car rental from the Chicago River to Oak Street and keep your eyes open for sites like the Tribune Tower, Wrigley Building, and the Chicago Water Tower.
