Atlantans will agree that there's no singular, homogeneous Atlanta. The same can be said of Chicago. Known as a city of neighborhoods—the untracked, unofficial count ranges somewhere around 200—Chicago boasts 77 distinct community areas. Chances are that when you think of Chicago, you think of the Loop—the city's downtown. But the north, west, and south sides of the city, and everything in between, are each unique and full of potential adventure.
When you deplane at Midway, downtown Chicago is a quick half-hour ride on the Orange Line train away. Cabs, rideshares, and rental cars are options too, of course, but the CTA system is an affordable option for navigating the city on a budget—and a great way to get a glimpse of the skyline and some neighborhood color. Visitors coming for business or with busy schedules can get a taste of the city without disrupting their agenda.
If your schedule is more flexible while in the City of the Big Shoulders, there's so much to do you might not know where to start. Animal lovers can visit Lincoln Park Zoo, or take a brief Metra train ride to the Western suburbs to check out Brookfield Zoo. Aquatic life aficionados can check out the Shedd Aquarium, then spend time traversing the lakeshore museum campus to take in more arts and culture. Entertainment abounds in the theater district, and fans of having their funny bone tickled can take advantage of being in the birthplace of improv. No matter the day (or night) of the week, there's something for everyone to enjoy in the Windy City.
