5 hours (approx) in Chicago with 4yo

Jump to last reply

I have an approx 5 hour layover in Chicago on July 5th, we're supposed to get into Chicago at 8.45am (if the Capitol Limited is anything like the Lake Shore Limited i guess we'll be late lol) and then the train to Omaha, NE isn't till 2pm so allowing for delays and baggage checks (i don't know whether we'll have to recheck it) we could have around 3 hours in Chicago that i would prefer not to spend in the Amtrak station :) I'm travelling with my 4yo daughter, is there anywhere within reasonable distance that i could take her say like a play park so she could lose some energy lol. We'll have had a 15 hour train trip from Washington DC and the train to Omaha is another 9 hours so any ideas where she should could have a proper runabout would be great

TIA
