Making your way to Atlanta Hartsfield
ATL tops just about every list as busiest airport in the world. Unlikely as it may seem, it is an enormous hub for the entire country. The size of this airport (and the ceaseless streams of passengers roaming its concourses) can be a challenge, but both the layout and the staff are efficient, and a little advance knowledge can save you a lot of time.
Seven parallel concourses are sandwiched between two main terminals, one for domestic travel and one for international flights. You can travel between all the airport buildings on the free rapid Plane Train people mover, so if you know where you’re going, getting there is a snap.
If you decide to drive to the airport you’ll need to pay close attention to the exit signs off the various interstates: each terminal has its own entrance and getting it wrong can bite off an infuriating chunk of time. It’s also possible to reach ATL by public transportation. The (MARTA) city rail system and various buses connect to the airport. We recommend the city rail route if possible. The trip from downtown is a quick 20 minutes, and trains run every 15 to 20 minutes between 4:45 am and 1 am weekdays as well as 6:00 am to 1 am on weekends. Fare is $2.50
Arriving in Chicago
The iconic architecture of this city is a big draw. Even if you’re not a building buff, you can’t help but admire the beautiful skyscrapers, many of which are world famous. The Tribune Tower, built in 1925, is a masterpiece of the neo-gothic style.
Chicago is also famous for comedy, having raised up some of America’s most famous and beloved comics at institutions like the Second City comedy club. Sports lovers will relish a trip to Wrigley Field, where you can take a guided tour behind the scenes of the beloved park and learn about its hundred years of baseball history. And of course, don’t leave Chicago without sampling the famous deep-dish pizza and hot dogs!
