Chicago Midway

1 airport

These two Midwestern cities have a lot in common, but Chicago has that big-city edge, and is a great destination for a quick getaway. It will only take you an hour and twenty minutes to travel the 276 miles between Columbus, Ohio and Chicago, Illinois.

Since Chicago has two airports, you’ve got a lot of choice when it comes to booking your direct flights. American and United both have heavy nonstop schedules between Port Columbus (CMH) and Chicago O'Hare (ORD). If you’d rather fly into the smaller Chicago Midway Airport (MDW), you can jump on a nonstop flight with Southwest.

Making Your Way to Port Columbus International Airport

Quiet, welcoming, and friendly, this airport may not be fancy, but it is well-loved by regular visitors. That open-hearted Ohio charm is evident among the kind volunteer Airport Ambassadors. The security lines are super-quick, and with a single terminal split into three concourses, it’s simple to get around.

There are thousands of power outlets and free WiFi so you can stay connected, and a designated pet relief area for furry travelers. Port Columbus is really easy to get to by car and there are lots of affordable parking options. You’ll also find bike parking at the airport and it’s possible to catch a COTA city bus, Line 92, which has an airport stop.

Arriving in Chicago

The jazz-age heritage of this city is alive and well in its beautiful skyscrapers and brilliant nightlife. Get a whole new perspective on the city by hopping on the The Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise, where an expert guide will regale you with the history behind each building.

Don’t forget to check out the gorgeous Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park. Nestled among the greens and gardens, it’s one of the largest fountains in the world, and produces 20 minute long displays of dancing water jets. The Shedd Aquarium, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Field Museum are all located within walking distance.

After a day of exploration, refresh yourself with a tasty hotdog or the melted-cheese miracle which is deep dish pizza, and finish off your evening with a trip to one of Chicago’s incredible comedy clubs.
