Cheap flights from Dallas to Chicago

If you’ll be arriving at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) from Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW), then upon your arrival, you’ll be a mere 20 minutes from downtown Chicago. After a short drive, you can see the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building, the Willis Tower, eat Chicago-style pizza at Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, or take an architectural boat tour on Lake Michigan.

Key Facts

Chicago’s street design is visitor-friendly, so you’ll find it’s a convenient option to rent a car once you arrive. The city features several diagonal roadways, such as Lincoln Avenue, Milwaukee Avenue and Clark Street, which make traversing the city even easier. If you want to take the scenic route, search for Lake Shore Drive on your car’s GPS system. The roadway will allow you to drive the length of the city while remaining close to the lake.

Hints and Tips

The flight time from Dallas to Chicago is one hour and 48 minutes. Consider reserving your car rental at the airport since it's the most convenient pick-up spot. Budget in parking fees for your visit to Chicago. If you park on the street, then set a timer because you can only park on the city’s streets for two hours.

Once you have your rental car, you can use it to tour nearby places of interest like Amish Country, and the historical town of Galena.
