Hints and tips

Spring provides the mildest weather with temperatures sticking close to the 60s. Summer is humid with temperatures in the 80s, and winter is quite cold and snowy with average temperatures in the 20s and 30s. After flying to O'Hare International Airport (ORD), you'll find that taxis are popular, but the train system provides the most speed and convenience. If festivals are your thing, take part in the Winter Celebration in Lights, the famous St Patrick's Day parade, and its coinciding green river, and Chicago Summerdance.
