Chicago O’Hare Airport Via Road
Driving in and out of this large airport is not the worst. I have been to many that have totally confused me, including Heathrow in London; O’Hare I find to be easy to navigate. Many of the Toll roads feed into the airport. There is plenty of parking, short and long term. O’Hare has a Kiss n Fly but be prepared to move off quick, the traffic police will want you to leave because it can get very busy. For longer goodbyes, use the short term parking.
The International terminal has it’s own parking lot just for arrivals. You may not fly out from this terminal for an international flight, it depends on your carrier, so just bear in mind where you leave and where you’ll arrive. Most will use the long term parking unless they have a limo.
Midway Airport. Milwaukee Airport.
Located south of Chicago is Midway airport. Smaller than O’Hare it is often used by travelers living south of the city but can be an option for vacation type flights depending on the carrier. It is about an hours drive from Barrington. Another option is Milwaukee Airport in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Whilst farther away than either of Chicago’s airports it might be suitable depending on who you want to fly with and where you want to go to.
