The Violet Hour

​​​​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. 

two wheels 

Divvy is a bike sharing system featuring thousands of bikes at hundreds of stations around the city.  New in 2018: the $15 Explorer Pass allows you to use a Divvy for 24 hrs (maximum 3 hours at once).  

Don't like feel like sharing ? Rent your own (includes helmet & 🔐) at Bobby's Bike Hike or join us for a tour

These boots are made ...

Chicago is a very walkable city,

so put on a decent pair of shoes

and start walking ...
