Air

Chicago’s international airports service more than 4,000 daily flights. Direct flights are available from all major US and International Cities. Don’t forget to check Midway International as it is closer to McCormick Place than O’Hare with carriers Delta, Frontier, Porter (Canada) and Southwest frequently offering lower fares.

Train

Chicago is the most important rail hub in America. Tracks radiate from the central City allowing Amtrak and regional lines to serve the market better than from any other major City in the USA. • Take Amtrak Roundtrip to Union Station, Chicago’s iconic station; or ride Metra lines into Union Station or Ogilvie Transportation Center from every corner of Chicagoland.
