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.
