The most apt description we've found of Chicago's O'Hare Airport is a Foursquare review that simply states, "Four words: automated toilet seat covers. Two more words: Garrett Popcorn." O'Hare has undergone massive renovations throughout the years and is now one of the most bustling, restaurant-speckled, shopping-laden international airports in the world. With 182 gates, moving sidewalks, and yes, rotating toilet seat covers, this massive facility was once the busiest airport in the world. In light of such heavy traffic, it's no wonder the facility has built in so many things to do - the United Airlines terminal even has a (fake) dinosaur. Before you head to your Chicago rental car, don't forget to try out a few of these Third Coast gems.
The people of Chicago have a very specific way of eating their hot dogs, and there are few better places to give it a try than Gold Coast Dogs. Rule No. 1: Don't, under any circumstances, put ketchup on your hot dog. Rule No. 2: When in doubt, ask for everything. (To clarify, "everything" is mustard, cheese, relish, onions, tomato, pickles, celery salt and pepper.) You can get your dog boiled or char-grilled, but char is definitely the way to go.
Located just 18 miles northwest of Chicago's downtown, O'Hare is relatively easy to get in and out of with your Chicago rental car (though the Blue Line takes some time to locate). It has a reputation for bad weather (and subsequent delays), but it's with so much to do, it's unlikely you'll even notice. And in case you're wondering how O'Hare got its airport code (ORD), it was once called Orchard Field Airport. Go figure.
