Chicago Help Needed Please!

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting Chicago solo April 18-20. I've never been to the "Windy City" but have heard wonderful things about it for years. I'll be heading to WI to visit my son for the rest of my vacation, but added on these extra days at the start of my vacation while he will be working. I've been so busy working on other projects that this vacation has crept up on me, and I haven't planned my time well at all. I've been reading Chicago trip reports here and answers to other questions, but hope you can help me specifically.

I am flying into O'Hare, have a rental car (which I could cancel if suggested during my Chicago time) before driving to WI, and plan to play tourist and visit some of the sights...museums, river architectural tour, maybe a baseball game depending on the weather or theater, etc. I'm comfortable taking the El but not so much the bus...sense of directions are not my forte!

I was going to bid a hotel on Priceline either around the Millennium Park/Loop area or North Michigan Avenue, but thought Fodorites might suggest I stay further out and take the El to the various attractions.

I would appreciate your suggestions regarding a hotel area and whether I should cancel the car until I drive to WI on Friday. Thanks so much for your help!
