Welcome to Chica-GO

Your arrival

You will most likely arrive at Chicago O'Hare.

Traffic to and from the airport can be horrible,

so if you are traveling light, take the  CTA Blue Line

to the city. It will cost you $5 per ticket and you will travel stress free. If you arrive at Midway Airport, you can take the CTA Orange Line to the Loop.  CTA trains and buses  are a good way to get around the city as well. 


Divvy is a bike sharing system

featuring thousands of bikes at

hundreds of stations around the city. 

Weather permitting, this is our favorite way to quickly get from point A to B - or just enjoy the views and the breeze on the lakefront trails on a hot summer day.

Chicago is a very walkable city,

so put on a decent pair of shoes

and start walking ...
