Travel Tips

Ninja Turtles Inspiration from Chicago

Legend has it that the creators of the comic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles conceived the names for the characters while sitting outside the Art Institute and reading the names of renowned artists carved into the borders of the building.

Save on Chicago's Best Museums

With the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and the Adler Planetarium, Museum Campus is one of the hottest tourist attractions in the city. Make the most of the Museum Campus and save money by purchasing a CityPASS, which provides all-access passes to Museum Campus, as well as Skydeck Chicago and the Museum of Science and Industry. With options of attractions to choose from, the CityPass is a smart way to visit Chicago sites and save.

Weather in the Windy City

With proximity to the lake, the weather in Chicago is unpredictable. Be sure to carry a light jacket to avoid rain or night chills. Even rainy days can turn around and become a sunny beach day!

Neighborhoods Flourish with Culture

Chicago is bursting with diversity. Be sure to get away from the tourist hotspots and visit a culturally authentic neighborhood such as Little India on Devon Avenue in Rogers Park or Chinatown on the Southside. Little Italy and Greektown are tucked just behind the downtown business district.

Sail Through Spectacular Views

Take a water taxi for under $20 and travel from Navy Pier to Museum Campus. It's cheaper than a sailboat ride and is just as relaxing with the cool lake breeze and offers the best view of the skyline from the water.
