Chicago attractions and Travel Tips

Car Rental in Chicago

The Windy City is known for its iconic architecture, museums, and gorgeous lakeside scenery. With a Chicago car rental, you can explore the biggest city in the Midwest and get to know what makes Chicago special. Whether you want to watch a game at Wrigley Field or eat some authentic deep-dish pizza downtown, Chicago has something to offer you. Find out how to rent a car in Chicago and discover the hidden secrets of America's third-largest city!

What can I see in Chicago?

Pick up cheap car rentals from the Chicago airport MDW and head downtown. The world-famous skyscrapers make this city special, and the most exciting is probably the Willis Tower. You can visit the Skydeck, 1,353 feet in the air, for unbeatable views of the city and the lake.

Many visitors also flock to Chicago's intriguing museums. Take your Chicago car hire to the Art Institute of Chicago to see a stunning collection of inspiring masterpieces from all around the world. If science is more your thing, head for the Museum of Science and Industry, which is packed with interactive exhibits for the kids to try out.

Want to try some authentic Chicago deep-dish pizza? You'll be spoiled for choice, with pizzerias all over the city offering this local classic. For something a little bit special, drive your rental car in Chicago to Gino's East, a pizza restaurant that has been endorsed by one of the city's most illustrious locals, Michelle Obama.

Chicago for kids

Chicago may not be renowned as a family destination, but there's enough here to keep little ones busy. Use your car hire from Chicago to get to Navy Pier on Lake Michigan. As well as the Centennial Wheel, you'll find bike rentals, a tall ship, and the Chicago Children's Museum. With plenty of rides and games to enjoy, this is a great spot for the kids.

Which sports venues can I visit?

Residents of Chicago are mad for sports. Whether you're into basketball, baseball, or football, you'll find great spots to visit. Your car hire in Chicago can easily take you to the United Center, home of the Bulls, or Soldier Field, where the Chicago Bears do battle. For many sports fans, the highlight is Wrigley Field. This ballpark, where the Chicago Cubs play, is over one hundred years old and retains an old-school charm not often seen nowadays. All three of these venues are easily accessible with cheap car rental in Chicago. Look out for venue tours when there are no games taking place.

Road trips from Chicago

Hop into your rental car in Chicago, and you may find yourself surprised by the unexpected beauty of the Midwest. Some 140 miles from the city, you'll come to Saugatuck, Michigan. Here you'll find great hiking trails and a beach that wouldn't look out of place in the Caribbean. It's a great drive to make in rental cars in Chicago, too: the road follows the line of Lake Michigan for some spectacular views.

In the opposite direction, Starved Rock State Park is a little under 100 miles from Chicago. This is one of the top wilderness spots in Illinois, with stunning waterfalls and rock formations. It's easily reached with your cheap car rental from Chicago and is a great place for a day trip.

What's the best way to get around Chicago?

Cheap car hire in Chicago gives you the chance to explore the Windy City and the Midwest comfortably and conveniently. Downtown, you can take the famous elevated transit system, the L, but outside of the center of the city, public transportation is sparse. Look for the best car rental in Chicago for a more enjoyable vacation.
