LOCAL ESSENTIALS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

In recent years, Chicago's way to start the day has evolved from traditions of yesteryear (slow and smooth) to one of active and let's get moving as quickly as possible. Start your day with any of the area's breakfast/lunch venues such as YOLK, La Briola, Waffles, or Wildberry. To help burn off the calories you might want to walk to one of the areas many attractions such as Navy Pier (4 blocks away), Millennium Park and the Cultural Center ( 6 blocks away) and be sure to take in the new Maggie Daley Park. It boosts the highest rock climbing wall in the state

AFTERNOON

Chicago prides itself on its lakefront along with its many beautiful parks. Take a walk, jog or bike ride along the 18 miles of Lake Michigan Shores or select from many seasonal activities ranging from shopping, trolley and double decker bus tours, architectural tours by boat or land, Segway tours, kayaking or ice skating! For a more relaxed scenario, high tea or alfresco dining are among the more popular ways to enjoy Chicago mid-day.

EVENING

Nightlife is an ever changing landscape which is exciting! Renowned chefs and restaurants with tasty and unique selections have contributed to Chicago’s distinction as a culinary destination. Clubs with a wide range of music are within reasonable distance of the hotel. Views of Chicago’s skyline at night are breathtaking and can be enjoyed from many vantage points including a dinner cruise or the observatories at the John Hancock Building or Willis Tower.

INSIDER TIPS

LOCAL CULTURE

CHICAGO DINING

Because Chicago is still growing and earning its reputation as a vibrant city there has been a tremendous influx of restaurant openings. Many great Chef's have been lured by the possibilities of our city.


CHILD FRIENDLY

Chicago is exceptionally child-friendly and even in the more upscale restaurants your kids are accommodated without question. Children's portions are almost always available. It also works that way for vegetarians or vegans. Many restaurants accomodate the diet restrictions of their patrons


TRANSPORTATION

You can request to share a cab from the airport which will cut the fare to downtown in half. The taxi dispatcher will arrange everything for you. The Chicago public transportation system called the CTA is quite extensive and visitors can forgo bringing their vehicles and just relax.


Local Weather

Weather conditions can change drastically in a matter of hours, plus temperatures vary between the lake front and more protected areas inland. It is always good to bring an extra layer of clothing like a light sweater that you can take off if it gets to warm or keep for the cool days


WEATHER/TRAVEL

In the summer, thunderstorms often form in the afternoon, frequently delaying travel both in and out of the airports. It is advisable to book a morning flight to avoid delays.


DID YOU KNOW ?

Chicago meat industry history

The Chicago meat industry spawned a number of inventions over time, like the refrigerated railroad car. This was designed in order to ship pre-cut meat instead of livestock to the East Coast.


Chicago River Reversal

In 1900 the flow of the Chicago River was permanently reversed in order to protect the quality of the drinking water at the time.


March 17 - Irish National Holiday

Not just a rumour, the Chicago River gets tinted green on Saint Patrick's Day.


Winter months

Some of the best deals for visiting the city can be found during the winter months. This goes for not only the hotel rates but the sightseeing tours around the city and the surronding suburbs


WHAT TO PACK

Buying a CTA card

The best way to see and explore the city is through its exceptional public transportation. You can purchase either a daily pass or weekly pass and use it on both the bus or train system.


Credit Card

Credit cards are the preferred American way to pay. In Chicago you can even pay your taxi fare with a credit card.


Sweater/light jacket

The best time to visit Chicago is during the warm months of the year, especially to enjoy the lake. Even so, temperatures by the water can be as much as 10°F cooler than slightly inland.


Walking shoes

Chicago is well known for its wonderful architecture which can be explored by walking the city or taking the architectural boat tour on the Chicago River.
