6-Hour "Layover" Chicago

6-Hour "Layover" Chicago

So you're visiting Chicago City and don’t know where to go and what to do?

It’s okay to feel this way, after all, Chicago IS the second biggest city of the United States of America, second to New York.  

If you have a layover at O’Hare International airport and want to see Chicago City for 6 hours, I am here to show you the landmarks that make this city a must see place. I will also help you understand why many film productions continue to choose Chicago as a spot for filmmaking. You will be walking around areas where movies like Batman Begins, The Dark Night, Mission Impossible, Wanted, Source Code, Transformer, While You Were Sleeping, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Risky Business and many more have been filmed. You will come to love Chicago in no time.

Millennium Park – The highlight of Chicago. You can’t come to Chicago and not see Millennium Park. This is the masterpiece of Chicago. I will show you where the handsome Jake Gyllenhaal and actress stood for the movie Source Code.

Magnificent Mile – So magnificent that famous movies like Transformers was shot here, one of the scenes from the Break, and the classic My Best Friend’s Wedding and where Jiuliana Rancic films her E news.

Navy Pier – “Have you been to the Navy Pier?” Locals will right away ask you this if you inquire where you should go next after you have seen Millennium Park.  Navy Pier, one of Chicago's most popular attractions, features more than 50 acres of parks, promenades and attractions for visitors. Here you will have the best triple layer chocolate cake in your life!

The exciting part doesn't start or end there!

You have 6 hours in Chicago City, but if you have more than 6 hours to spend then I have some more things for you!

Including best restaurants, adorable parks, cool neighborhoods, fun activities, and the best night clubs rated by locals and foreigners!

Your itinerary for 6 hours includes:

  • Grand Park
