St. Louis residents looking to trace the storied path of last century s greatest jazz and blues musicians can fly from St. Louis to Chicago in just over an hour. MetroLink provides light rail service to Lambert St. Louis International Airport (STL), and long-term parking is available for those who prefer to drive. Once in Chicago, there s much more than music to enjoy.
The heart of Chicago beats around the crescent-shaped shore of Lake Michigan. The perfect way for a newcomer to experience the city is to tour Lake Shore Drive, which runs past many of Chicago s beloved sites. At the south end of the Drive is Soldier Field where the Bears have played since 1924. Next door sits the Chicago Aquarium and the Natural History Museum. Next to Millennium Park is the Chicago Art Institute, which features one of the most famous collections of contemporary art in the world.
Visitors who fly from St. Louis to Chicago don t need to drive. Chicago s L trains run throughout the city and are the preferred method of getting around for most locals. Catch the Blue Line L at Chicago O Hare International Airport (ORD) and transfer downtown to the Red Line. While in Chicago, expect average temperatures ranging from the teens to the mid-80s. Music lovers should plan to visit in June for the Chicago Blues Festival.
