Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) is accessible using Exit 223B on I-10 W.
When flying from MSY to Chicago Ohare International (ORD), flights usually last for two-and-a-half hours nonstop. Once you're at ORD, you can reach downtown Chicago via the I-190 E, which merges into the I-90. Transportation options include curbside taxis, car rentals and the public subway Blue Line Station located in Terminal 2's lower level.
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.
