Cheap flights from San Francisco to Chicago

If you fly from San Francisco to Chicago, you will find quite a contrast between the hilly city of San Francisco and the flat city of Chicago. Dependable transportation will make it easy for you to visit all of Chicago's nearby attractions.

It is best to rent a car at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD), then you can head over to Lake Park to get some fresh air. You can relax in the gazebo or stroll along the path next to Lake Opeka. When you have spent enough time enjoying nature, take your car into the city to see the sights.

Key Facts

If you want to spend some time near the airport, before heading into the city, you can visit Frank Lloyd Wright's studio and home in Oak Park. There you will be able to see Wright's drafting room in the studio. The Kohl Children's Museum in Glenview can easily be reached by car. The museum features interactive exhibits, such as an art exhibit where children can paint and play with clay.

Hints and Tips

The flight from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Chicago takes approximately four and a half hours. Visit the Chicago History Museum to learn about the city's transformation from a frontier town, into a bustling metropolis.
