Traveling to the Windy City is something Americans do for many reasons. Business trips often take professionals to this major American hub, and so of course do family visits and so on. I’ve been to Chicago for both reasons. But not everyone realizes what a great tourist destination Chicago can be. Even if you’re visiting for some other reason, why not take advantage of the opportunity to see this beautiful metropolis for all that it is?

If you arrive by plane, the first thing you’ll want to figure out is Chicago airport transportation. Getting to and from this busy airport can be a bit of a challenge for the uninitiated. But renting a car at the airport kiosk isn’t your only ticket to Chicago airport transportation. The CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) recommends the “L” train system as the easiest way to get into and around town. There are also shuttle services (i.e. buses) that provide visitors with Chicago airport transportation to many of the city’s different districts.

And have you thought about hiring the sort of charter bus Chicago residents love to use? If you’re visiting with a large group of extended family or friends, or if you’re arriving with a significant number of coworkers for a business convention or professional conference, a Chicago charter bus can be an affordable and practical way to move your group around town, even on a tight schedule. Chicago charter buses have become favorites of many businesses who want to make their employees’ visit safe, easy and fun. And did you realize that many of these bus services are also fully prepared to provide Chicago airport transportation to start and finish off your journey?

And speaking of fun, let’s not forget all the excitement that can be had with Chicago sightseeing tours. Whatever your reason for coming to town, you’ll find that Chicago is the home of major American landmarks you won’t want to miss. Taking a guided Chicago bus tour around the city is a great way to learn your way around, to appreciate Chicago’s rich history, and to feast your eyes on landmarks like the Buckingham Fountain and the Chicago Theatre. You can’t necessarily use these sorts of tour buses for Chicago airport transportation, but I can’t recommend them enough because they’re such a great value!
