Chicago, Illinois

Millions of travelers visit Chicago every year for the historic sites, landmarks, museums, restaurants, and shops, but locals often escape the city by flying from O'Hare International Airport. Some residents take a bus to the airport by using the CTA Bus Line or PACE, while others rent a taxi or limousine. Taxi drivers often charge around $40 for a trip to the airport. You can also take your own car to the airport and park at one of the on-site lots. The daily lots charge $33 on weekdays and $31 on weekends. Valet parking costs $48, and you can also park in the economy lots for less than $20 per day.

Food at O'Hare is available from Starbuck's Coffee, Reggio's Hot Dogs, Auntie Anne's, America's Dog, and many other fast food restaurants. If you have more time available, you might try one of the sit-down restaurants.

Frankfurt, Germany

Millions of people use air travel to reach Frankfurt every year. The city is home to Oktoberfest, jazz festivals, and dozens of other festivals devoted to the arts. Travelers also get the chance to see live performances at some of the top theaters in the city, which let you enjoy the traditional culture of Germany.

See Frankfurt up Close

The Frankfurt Airport boasts two terminals, and each terminal has rental car agencies on-site. Advantage, Sixt, Hertz, and several others are in Terminal 1, while Terminal 2 is home to seven agencies, including Alamo, Europcar, and Budget. Travelers can also take a hotel shuttle to their hotel, or you can find a taxi outside the airport. It usually takes 30 minutes or less to reach downtown from the airport.

Before you choose a flight, you should think about when you want to travel. Winter starts in November, and temperatures can drop as low as 27 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer brings temperatures in the mid-70s to high 70s, and you can enjoy some of the top festivals during this season. The annual jazz festival occurs in March; however, if you visit for this event, wear warm clothing, because temperatures typically only reach the high 40s.

Even if you visit Frankfurt for one of these events, you will still want to find other things to do. The Tigerpalast Variete Theatre and English Theatre show traditional performances and shows throughout the year. The Stadel Museum, Senckenberg Natural History Museum, and German Film Museum appeal to those interested in history and culture. Some travelers also enjoy spending time walking through downtown and touring the many skyscrapers in the city.
