I am considering a weekend trip to Chicago this fall in conjunction with a football game. This will leave me some sightseeing time on Saturday and Sunday. I will avoid questions that I can find out from Fodor's, etc. but ask for your help with the following:
1. Are there any neighborhoods surrounding Midway or O'Hare that would raise safety concerns? I am leaning toward flying into Midway.
2. How bad is weekend traffic on I-294 getting to/from the Evanston area if I rent a car? How much is the toll? Is a taxi a better option than a car?
Thx for your replies!
