All you need to know about Chicago

What to do in Chicago

Chicago is a city full of life and activity. Beyond having major sports teams for most sports, the city also has plenty of nightlife, museums, and activity zones throughout the city. Using SIXT to rent a car in Chicago, you can visit the famous Millennium Park to view some art, ice skate, and enjoy the outdoors. Use your rental car to travel where only a car can take you, like along the lakeshore to Chicago's Botanical Gardens. Other popular locations include Navy Pier, Shedd Aquarium, and the Art Institute of Chicago.

Road Trips from Chicago 

Milwaukee: Less than 2 hours north of Chicago on I-94 is Milwaukee. This unique city also sits on Lake Michigan and is home to Harley-Davidson and several breweries. Visit museums like the Milwaukee Art Museum or Discovery World if the weather is bad. 

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore: Drive about 1 hour southeast along Lake Michigan to Indiana Dunes National Park. Bask in the sun on the beach and go swimming or hike along the sand dunes or up Mount Baldy. If you’ve had enough of nature, check out some of the historic homes along the lakeshore or nearby towns. 

Starved Rock State Park: This is a great destination for a weekend hiking or camping trip. It’s less than 2 hours from Chicago via I-80 W, and you can find hiking trails and ancient rock formations, plus you can go boating or kayaking in the Illinois River. Keep in mind that if you want to camp here in the peak season, you’ll need to book far ahead of time. 

Toll roads in Chicago 

Chicago Skyway: If you’re heading south into Indiana on I-90 or I-94, you will need to pay a variable rate depending on how many axles your vehicle has and what time of day it is. Payment can be made electronically or with cash. 

Jane Addams Memorial Tollway: If you drive on I-90 or I-290 between Rockford and O’Hare International Airport, you’ll need to pay tolls. The cost depends on the time of day and type of vehicle. Payment can be made electronically or with cash. 

Summer in Chicago

The warmer months of the year provide some excellent opportunities for enjoyment in Chicago. While the city has much to offer, using your SIXT rental car to head out to the surrounding beaches along Lake Michigan is an excellent summer activity. Visiting outdoor locations like the Garfield Conservatory can be a fun way to spend the afternoon. The nice weather also opens all of the outdoor and rooftop dining locations throughout the city.

@SixtRentACarChicagoAirport I’m about to pick up a car at the chicago airport. I tried calling but I couldn’t get through. Is there a way to confirm that this location accepts chase bank debit cards with a deposit as written on the conditions? Thanks !

Christina did a fantastic job at helping me out with my rental and advocating for me when there was an issue with my Priceline reservation. Thanks so much!

I just shared my thoughts. Elorite Titus was great. The cooperation between the two Sixt rental locations (O'Hare and South Loop) was non-existent.

Christina was great - incredibly courteous and helpful.
