Lying in the heart of the United States’ Midwest is the country’s third largest city. Centered between its two bigger metropolitan brethren, Los Angeles and New York City, Chicago has long been a focal point for the transportation, telecommunications, and technology, commerce, and finance sectors. It is only 355 miles and 1 hour and 5 minutes by air from Minneapolis, one of the Minnesota’s critically acclaimed Twin Cities.

The destination is located to the Northwest, and shares a similar climate, though due to its close proximity to Lake Michigan, “The Windy City” is frequently prone to high gusts that drive down the temperature.

Both areas are known for their large amounts of open space and public parks, though most of the hotspots in Chicago are highly centralized. The City of Lakes is notably smaller, so it offers travelers a quieter atmosphere than they may be used to. Southwest Airlines is the primary carrier that offers direct flights from Chicago to Minneapolis, followed by American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta, and US Airways.

Once You’re in O’Hare

O’Hare International can be found 17 miles northwest of Chicago’s downtown loop, on the city’s Far Northwest Side. It currently holds the record for the most aircraft takeoffs and landings, a title it finally took from Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta after nearly a decade. It is also the busiest airport on the planet as far as total traffic movements are concerned, and the third in the United States for passenger traffic.

A hub for United Airlines and American Airlines, O’Hare remains a central flight hub for Air Choice One and Frontier Airlines, too. Four terminals, nine concourses, and 182 gates make up O’Hare. In the unfortunate event that your flight is cancelled, the airport offers passengers cots, pillows, and blankets free of charge for any potential overnight stays.

Meanwhile… in Minneapolis

The larger of the Twin Cities (Saint Paul is the smaller one); Minneapolis is divided into six distinct districts. Downtown is where the bulk of the city’s attractions can be found. Many sports complexes and theatre venues are here, along with a wealth of shopping centers.

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Target Field, Lake Harriet, Chain of Lakes, and the Sculpture Garden are all worthy of your vacation time. Enjoy “Mini Apple” at your leisure!
