O'Hare International Airport is located 18 miles northwest of downtown Chicago. It's core mission is to provide outstanding service and amenities to customers.
Don't forget your son Kevin at home. He'll most likely have to fend off burglars on his own.
Check out the rotating toilet seat covers!
If you are on a moving sidwalk and don't feel like walking please stay to the right. The rest of us are trying to get by lol

Fasten your seal belt and listen to flight attendant instructions!
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.
Fly out of Midway!
Don't worry, you'll make your connection. It's delayed too.
Security lines to the far right in most terminals move a lot faster and have almost no line.
This water bottle refill station / water fountain saved over ten thousand bottles from entering landfill and counting!
On the bright side, the wait to board is still shorter than your average DMV visit. #DontBlowIt
ORD stands for the airport's old name - Orchard Fields.
Two hours early can be torture here, but long lines at security are assumed.
Don't mouth off to them. Any of them. And if they stand too close, get used to it!
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!
Welcome to Chicago! If you want to listen to the local NPR station, turn your dial to FM 91.5 (WBEZ). Enjoy your trip.
Bring Xanax, you'll need it
The best Chicago Dog at ORD airport can be found in L4 or in Terminal 5. You can't beat the Char Dog Chicago style at Gold Coast Dogs.
Bring a hoodie or heavy sweater because they keep this airport frosty.
Yeah, the automatic ass gaskets are pretty cool.
there is a hidden starbucks at G13
Try the Garrett Chicago Mix Popcorn and spot it on Foodspotting!
Love this city. Love this airport.
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.
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.:)

Don't fly United. The planes are ancient, and the gates are a zoo.
power stations are in short supply, bring a small surge protector and make friends
Deep breaths. I know this airport sucks. But you'll get by.
MOVING SIDEWALKS. Are we in the future??
Find a different airport.

Kiss someone you love hello/goodbye...
Eat before you get to O'Hare...
The billy goat is a great place in concourse C for fast, cheap breakfast.
