re: Chicago, things to do?
All restaurants are good in Chicago. The bad ones go broke.

Be sure to try an Italian beef sandwich. It will be like the very best French dip you ever ate. Two restaurants argue over which one of them has the best. I cannot remember their names so just ask someone once you get there.

The L is so easy to navigate. I only use ubes if it’s really late or I don’t feel like freezing my arse off.

re: Chicago, things to do?
bump,

When staying in the Magnificent Mile area, The L train doesn't pass in that area correct? I read something about a public bus/shuttle that passes up and down Michigan Ave that is free, but you should tip driver.

Outside of that I looked up Uber's and prices and its really cheap.

$20-25 from airport to hotel for an Uber, or would you recommend a different way of transport?


Thx!

If coming from ORD (Blue) or MDW (Red), you can transfer to the Red Line and get on the train towards Howard. Get off at Grand/State or Chicago and walk a couple blocks east. You'll hit Michigan Ave.

If coming from MDW, transfer to Red at Roosevelt. If ORD, get off at Washington and take underground walkway to Lake.

I'd be surprised if your Uber was $20-25 from MDW or ORD. Can't remember the last time I took one under $30.

For convenience of being from out-of-town, I'd be inclined to take an Uber, but the 'L' is not difficult to navigate, either. During rush hour, there isn't much of a difference between the two getting down to Magnificent Mile, River North and Streeterville area.

re: Chicago, things to do?
Awesome, you are a huge help and have great insight on the city. Thx for the info!

I'm sure I may bump the thread for more info if I think of anything. Will try to cram doing plenty in the short amount of time we are there, but I know we'll go back another time during the warmer months for a Cubs game.
