Miami International Airport

The Miami International Airport is located eight miles northwest of downtown Miami. It's the primary airport for South Florida and serves more than 38 million passengers each year. Four airlines offer flights from Miami to Chicago: US Airways, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines.

If you need to leave your car at the airport while you travel, you can choose from garage or economy parking. It costs $17 per day to park in the parking garage, but you can park in the economy lot for $8 per day. If you don't want to drive to the airport, you can take the bus from downtown Miami to the Miami Central Station. The airport offers free shuttle services to passengers coming from the station. You can also take a taxicab. Cab fare from downtown to the airport costs between $10 and $14.

If you want to get something to eat before your flight, the airport has numerous dining options. You can choose from Café Versailles, La Carreta Restaurant, Manchu Wok or the Juan Valdez Café.

Chicago, Illinois

Located along the shore of Lake Michigan, Chicago has something for everyone. From Navy Pier to the upscale stores along Magnificent Mile, it's easy to find activities to occupy your time while you're in the Windy City.

Exploring Chicago

Chicago is home to two major airports: O'Hare International Airport and Chicago Midway International Airport. Flights from Miami arrive at both airports on a daily basis. You can take the elevated train, known as the El, from either airport into the city. If your flight lands at O'Hare, you need to take the Blue Line train. If your flight lands at Midway, you need to take the Orange Line Train. You can also take the bus from O'Hare into Chicago. Taxi service is available at both airports. Cab fare from O'Hare costs between $35 and $40. Cab fare from Midway costs between $28 and $30.

Chicago has four distinct seasons: cool, wet springs, hot, humid summers, chilly falls and cold, snowy winters. During the summer months, average temperatures range from the low 60s to the mid-80s. During the winter months, average temperatures range from the mid-teens to the mid-30s. The city's rainy season runs from April to September. Because the temperature can vary drastically from day to night, it's smart to pack clothes that you can layer.

If you visit Chicago in the summer, you can spend an entire day at Navy Pier. The area is home to a giant Ferris wheel, shops and a beach. If you love museums, you can visit the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Oriental Institute Museum. When you're shopping along Michigan Avenue, take a short side trip and visit Cloud Gate-the huge bean-shaped sculpture that sits in Millennium Park.
