My husband and son are driving to Chicago (from MI) for an event at the Chicago Theatre in late October. Having never driven in downtown Chicago area, and only having visited once (we took the train, then used cabs and buses to get around), are they better off driving in and staying as close as possible to the theatre; or staying out of the downtown area and taking a cab in for the event that night? I've checked, and parking at most hotels is running $30-$40 for the night. I would think cab fare to and from the theatre would be cheaper than $30 from somewhere else, AND they wouldn't have to deal with driving around town. Would love any suggestions/ideas. Thanks in advance!
