Explore Chicago

Whether your first order of business when you deplane at Chicago Midway International Airport is to belly up to a bar for a Chicago Handshake, to order up a tavern style pizza, or to hit the streets for a walking tour, the City of the Big Shoulders is ready to say hello! Grab a rental car, call a rideshare, or hop on the Orange Line of the ‘L’ and start your Windy City adventure.

Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, boasting 77 officially designated neighborhood areas. You likely won’t have time to hit each and every one of them in one visit, but you can pass through many of them aboard the ‘L’; consider buying a CTA pass and going on an uncharted expedition. Some of the best eats in the city can be found miles away from Restaurant Row, so pick up that Michelin Guide and venture to Logan Square, Avondale, Pilsen, or Bronzeville.

If your preferred use of your belly is laughter, get ready for nightly opportunities for chuckles. Chicago is a world-famous comedy town thanks to the rich history of improv comedy, but you’ll also find standup (both professional and open mics) and sketch comedy every night of the week. If you prefer theater, there are local troupes as well as Broadway in Chicago shows—something for every kind of theatergoer.

No matter what you’re hungry for when you land in Chicago or how you choose to spend your time, flying from Cincinnati to Chicago (Midway) with Southwest Airlines makes the booking-to-boarding portion of your trip a breeze.
