Top Tips

  • Navigating the city is fairly easy, as Chicago has a series of highways that lead into the Downtown area from the north, south and west. However, be prepared for frustrating delays on those highways during rush hour. The times to avoid are 7:00am to 9:00am and 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
  • Chicago has many parking regulations which are unique to the city. These include; no parking on the south side of major streets from 7:00am to 9:00am and on the north side from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, and no parking on major streets if there is more than two inches of snow.
  • If you use metered parking on the streets of Downtown Chicago, keep your eye on the time as parking rules are rigorously enforced there.

Day trips from Chicago, IL

Harley-Davidson Museum: Situated less than a two-hour drive from Chicago, the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee is a must for motorcycle enthusiasts. Offering a glimpse of the company’s history, interactive exhibits and an unparalleled collection of artefacts tell the story behind this iconic brand. With more than 450 motorcycles dating back to Serial Number One, the oldest known Harley, this world-class museum is well worth visiting.

Indiana Dunes: With towering sand dunes (reaching an incredible 200 feet in height) lining 15 miles of stunning Lake Michigan shoreline, the Indiana Dunes provide the perfect escape from the sprawling metropolis of Chicago. This beautiful landscape is only one hour’s drive from Chicago, and is the perfect location for swimming, hiking, biking and bird-watching.

Nappanee, Indiana: Although Nappanee can be reached in approximately two hours by car, visiting this tiny town in the heart of Amish country is like taking a trip back in time. The area is a magnet for tourists who come to experience the Amish way of life, and to enjoy the scenic landscape and the fascinating towns dotted throughout.
