2 Weeks in Chicago. Where to stay?

Jump to last reply

We are considering taking our son up to Chicago for a 2 week summer camp. It is not a sleep away type camp so we would pick him up at the end of class each day.

We've been to Chicago more times than I can count but we have always stayed downtown and walked everywhere. I don't think I have ever used public transportation there. No need.

Since downtown would be expensive for 2 weeks (need a full kitchen, too) is there a nearby suburb we could stay in that was safe and would allow us to take public transportation downtown each day?

Thanks!
