Attractions and Tips

The Windy City has many popular attractions, including the Art Institute of Chicago, Lookingglass Theatre Company, the Museum of Science and Industry, and the lakefront Millennium Park.

Wrigley Field is the historic home of the Chicago Cubs, and the downtown thoroughfare Michigan Avenue features the "Magnificent Mile," a stretch of shops and landmarks such as the Wrigley Building and the Allerton Hotel.

The City of Rockford is just 30 minutes away via I-290 W and I-90 W and attractions there include the 12-acre Anderson Japanese Gardens and Sinnissippi Park.

Chicago weather varies by season, with the winters being cold and part of the summer hot and humid. Pack waterproof boots early in the spring, as leftover snow can make for wet streets. The Magnificent Mile is a popular area for travelers to stay.

*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
