"Driving in Chicago" Driving/Parking Tip by sambarnett

Driving/Parking, Chicago: 56 reviews and 48 photos


TO drive or not to drive, that is the question. I approach it this way: If I’m going to the Loop or the North Side, particularly Cubs day games, I prefer to use public transportation. Anything on the South or West side I usually drive.
   Get a map, learn it and create wacky short cuts, the Interstates occasionally resemble parking lots. Driving around the Loop, especially during rush hour, is a tiring game of skill, wit and perseverance.

Pictured: So rare I had to capture it in pictures. The Dyan Ryan, NOT clogged up.

Type: Car/Motor Home

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
