Like most major cities the best ways to get around are with public transportation. Chicago's "L" trains do a Loop around the downtown section of the city, but also connect both airports (O'Hare and Midway) to downtown and you can actually get between both airports this way also. Most of the time when we go downtown we will park our car at one of the stations in the suburbs (usually Forest Park) and then take the 20 minute ride from there into downtown.

You can also take the train the Wrigley Field (really the best way because parking is difficult in this neighborhood) or to US Cellular (only for Sox fans). The trains also are about a 2 block walk to the United Center which is the home of the Chicago Bulls (Basketball) the and Chicago Blackhawks (Hockey).

    When I was nine years old the Cubs had a 36-game losing streak. I was so heartbroken I vowed never to set foot in Wrigley Field again, which in fact I haven't (so far).

      That was the year I changed my career plans and decided not to be a sports announcer after all.

      As a child I wanted to grow up and be the Chicago Cubs team statistician. Good thing I didn't go down that path. The guy who did the stats when I was a kid just died a few years ago. And he did the stats up until the time he died.
