Chicago is a city for the senses. For starters, it has some of the best architecture in the world, from Frank Gehry’s Pritzker Pavilion to Frank Lloyd Wright’s stained-glass Robie House. Don’t worry, it’s not all Franks here…except for the famous Chicago dog, which is a frankfurter between two buns stuffed with yellow mustard, onions, pickles, tomato and pickled peppers. It’s like a party in your mouth.
Speaking of parties, locals like to get down to deep blues, thumping house music and the sweet, sweet sounds of the roaring (and sometimes swearing) crowd at a Cubs, Bears, Bulls or White Sox game. Buckle up: It’s going to be a wild ride.
Point your Chicago car rental toward downtown to gawk at the skyscrapers that make up the beautiful skyline. If the weather’s fine, throw on your swimsuit and enjoy the beach on the Far North. If not, enjoy a cuppa at one of the hipster-friendly cafes on the West Side.
When the sun goes down, we know where you’ll be: ready to throw down at Chicago’s famous house music scene—perhaps in the clubs of the North Side? These parties go all night, but if you get tired, don’t be a hero. Just head to one of lastminute.com.au’s hotels in Chicago.
Speaking of heroes, one of ours lays his head just 325km south in Springfield, Illinois. Stumped? That’s where 16th American president Abraham Lincoln is buried. For a special treat, point one of our Chicago car hire options 271km west toward the town of Galena and go antiquing. Hey, maybe you’ll find a top hat or an extra-long suit and you and Abraham can be twinsies.
Prefer a hike instead? Check out Starved Rock State Park for canyon and waterfall trails just150 km outside the city.
