    Don't forget your son Kevin at home. He'll most likely have to fend off burglars on his own.

    On a layover? Head over to the United Airlines terminal to take in the neon lit pedestrian bridge & dinosaur. If you've got a little extra time, head over to the WWII era plane & get a history lesson!

    You can't be in Chicago without trying Garrett Popcorn. Located in terminal B near security. Get the Chicago mix for a sweet/savory treat that eases the pain of the inevitable delays at this airport.

    Security lines to the far right in most terminals move a lot faster and have almost no line.

    Two hours early can be torture here, but long lines at security are assumed.

    Some of the most creative and well placed advertising of recent years has happened here. Favorite? Security trays advertising Amtrack reminding that THEY let you keep your shoes on!

    Always take the proper licensed taxi. There are plenty illegal cabs here. Never walk to parking lot with anybody to get in their cab. Always follow signs & take cabs from proper places.

    Chicago C. · August 29, 2011
  • Chicago C.

    All Chicago taxi are required by city law to accept credit cards. Still, confirm from your driver first or, if U don't wanna deal with these issues let me know. I do pick ups to & from the airport.:)
