You know Chicago as the Windy City, and we promise you’ll be “blown away” by this Illinois destination. Sorry, we needed to meet our daily pun quota. But seriously, between the sparkling water of Lake Michigan and shiny things along the Magnificent Mile, you can’t help but be impressed. Slide into one of Wotif’s Chicago car hire deals and exploring Chi-Town will be a breeze.
You’ve settled into your downtown hotel and begun your day with a strong cup of coffee. Now what? Turn over the ignition on your Chicago car rental and head 38km north to the Chicago Botanic Garden. The venue has millions of plants, and it’s open every day of the year.
In the summer months, zip south along the coast and stop at Montrose Beach. Go ahead, treat yourself to an afternoon with your toes in the sand along Lake Michigan. Continue south, and soon you can park near Navy Pier and properly explore.
Visiting during winter months? Drive to Millennium Park, throw on some skates and show off your spinniest spins on the outdoor ice rink.
You’ve been craning your neck to look at high-rise office buildings and hotels in Chicago, but how about a quick change of scenery? Hop into your wheels and go 135km northwest to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. You can sip cocktails in a renovated Victorian mansion, then walk off the booze along the shoreline.
On the other hand, you can always skedaddle 135km to the southwest and play tourist in the historic town of Ottawa, Illinois, and Starved Rock State Park.
When you book your car hire in Chicago with Wotif, you don’t have to eat through your deep-dish pizza budget (trust us, that’s an important perk). Your own ride makes the perfect complement to Chicago holiday packages —thanks to the money you save, you’ll be living like royalty without selling your heirlooms!
