Chicago traffic


How long does it generally take to get from the Ohare Hyatt hotel to the airport? During rush hour traffic and non-rush hour traffic. I live nearby Seattle, and we have about the worst traffic in the nation. Wondering if it will be the same trying to drive through Chicago

The Hyatt is only 5-10 minutes away from O'Hare and there is a free shuttle to and from the airport.

It depends on the season. In Chicago we only have 2 seasons, Winter and Construction, Traffic slows down during Construction Season.

Usually getting to Chicago is never a problem... however, getting anywhere IN Chicago can be challenging, and if you deviate from your map... getting OUT could be almost impossible.

The last time I was in Chicago I was taking my (now ex) girlfriend for a night out in the Big City (We lived in Lansing, Michigan at that time). I decided to be slick and head back o the highway on a way OTHER than what our map said... we had a nice 3 hour tour of the city.

Just sit right back and here the tale...
(Insert Gilligans Island theme song here)
A 3 hour tour... A 3 hour tour.....

It is best I found if traveling around an area you don't know to have someone on the phone tracking you with Google Maps, saved me once.. Mouse

Well by the time i figured out it wasn't going to work... we had been driving for an hour... by the time she figured out it wasn't working, we JUST made it back to the highway

"You don't even know where we are do you?!? YOUR LOST?!?! WE'RE LOST?????"

"... .... No! See! The highway is right there!!!" ... :phew:

Who's on 1st, what's on 2nd, I don't know? 3rd base..

a Sirtwist on cell with Google Maps is cheaper and faster than a GPS system.. Mouse

I see that I've now been reduced to the usefulness of an inexpensive electronic gadget.

LOL
