Chicago Car Rentals
Finding great rental cars in Chicago is simple!
With a population of 2.6 million people, Chicago is America's third largest city. Chicago is known by many names: the Second City, the Windy City, the City of Broad Shoulders . . . but none of its nicknames comes close to describing this diverse, fun and vibrant city. You'll have to discover it for yourself! Get a Chicago car rental for your family vacation and enjoy complete flexibility in your exploration of America's Midwestern cultural center.
The city lights
Chicago's core business and high rise district, also known as 'The Loop' by natives, is an urban playground for traveling families. Park your Chicago rental car at ground level and take the kids up to the observation deck of what was once the tallest building in the world, The Willis (formerly Sears) Tower. Towering 1,450 feet above the ground, Willis Tower offers incredible city views and a family experience like no other. While you're downtown, take a ride on Chicago's elevated train, or 'El.' Kids will love looking out their window as the train loops through Chicago's skyscrapers, offering an inside view of the city's core.
Take it all in
You may be on vacation, but that doesn't mean you can't be learning something while you're here! Kids can get hands-on at Hyde Park neighborhood's Museum of Science and Industry, with its array of awe-inspiring and sensor-pleasing science experiments. Don't forget the world famous Shedd Aquarium or Adler Planetarium, either! If you can't decide whether you prefer light shows or dolphins, don't worry - these two incredible museums are located within feet of one another, so you'll likely have time for both in one day! If you still have free time, hop in your Chicago rental car and head over to Navy Pier to visit the Chicago Children's Museum, where you and your little ones can dig for dinosaur bones, paint masterpieces together and search for tiny treasures.
Respites for the restless
If museums and skyscrapers become too stuffy for your little ones, give them what they want: room to play! Chicago's park spaces are renowned for their urban design and fun features. If you're downtown, make a stop in Millennium or Grant Park. The kids can splash and play in Millennium Park's Crown Fountain while you admire the Chicago skyline. Since you have a Chicago car rental, make sure to take a detour to Chicago's famous Lincoln Park. Spanning 1,200 acres, this urban oasis stretches along the Lake Michigan coastline, and includes such attractions as Lincoln Park Zoo, Theatre on the Lake and North Avenue Beach.
Chicago is the third-largest city in the U.S., and one of the most iconic. Home to the renowned Chicago Tribune, the Chicago River, the Willis Tower (once called the Sears Tower), the John Hancock Center and Oak Park – which features many of Frank Lloyd Wright’s legendary designs – it’s a city with a style and reputation few can match.
