Chicago Airport Tips
Whether you take a flight from Orlando to Chicago landing at O'Hare or Midway Airport, you will find yourself within less than 20 miles of the Loop, Chicago's downtown district. Once you have claimed any bags checked, you can opt to rent a car at the airport and drive on to your hotel or other destination. Of course, you can also take public transportation or a taxi into downtown Chicago from either airport. If you arrive at O'Hare Airport and are in a rush to take a cab, there is a taxi stand at Terminal 2 that is often overlooked. Beat the crowds and head there instead of waiting in what can often be very long lines. You can also save time and money by taking the 24-hour CTA Blue Line to Clark and Lake for about $5.00, then grab a taxi from there to your location at a less expensive price.
When traveling on a domestic flight to Chicago, such as flights from Orlando to Chicago, you may want to use Midway Airport as opposed to the much busier O'Hare, which often has delays, especially in bad weather. Travel early in the day to avoid crowds and congestion.
