Chicago's appeal has been apparent for decades. This historic, character-filled city has been credited for its major contributions to jazz, diverse neighborhoods and party-loving reputation. You'll enjoy driving your Chicago rental car to all the local hotspots, taking in all this incredible city has to offer. Nicknamed the "Second City" because of its ability to rebuild itself from the ashes of the 1871 Great Chicago Fire, this refreshingly modern yet deeply rooted city is renowned for its food, music, nightlife and diversity. From fine restaurants to dive bars, museums to urban parks, Chicago's appeal lies in the inseparability of its ritz and glamour from its darker side.
View from the top
You're on vacation, so why not get a bird's eye view of your destination? Chicago's skyscrapers are known the world over. The Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, was the world's tallest building for many years. Now the eighth tallest building in the world, it is still the tallest building in the Western hemisphere. Take a trip up to the observation deck, where you'll stand 1,450 feet above the ground. Or, drive your Chicago rental car to the John Hancock building. Here, you'll be able to order drinks or dinner in the Signature Room, where you'll enjoy sweeping views of Chicago from the 95th floor.
Food for the mind
Chicago's numerous and respected museums offer a chance to feed your mind. At the Art Institute of Chicago, you can feast your eyes on inspiring art from around the globe, including George-Pierre Seurat's famous pointillist piece 'Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.' To get a taste of Chicago's past, head over to the Chicago History Museum, where you'll learn about the city's working class past, growth, struggles and successes. Other museums include the Museum of Science and Industry, the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium.
A day in the park
Your Chicago car rental will come in handy for exploring Chicago's many neighborhoods, and with great neighborhoods come great parks. Take your Chicago car rental to the Lincoln Park area, where you can park your vehicle and enjoy 1,200 acres of public park space. If you're looking for a short trip from your downtown hotel or lodging, head to Chicago's central business district, "The Loop." Home to newly constructed Millenium Park, Buckingham Fountain and the city's museum campus, Grant Park is sometimes referred to as Chicago's "Front Yard."
