Traveling around Illinois

We recommend renting a car in Illinois. It will be an easier commute to various places and you will find plenty of parking facilities. If you are visiting Chicago, you have the option of public transportation, like the famous Chicago "L." But most other cities are better suited to driving yourself. The state also has a variety of taxi services as well as Uber and Lyft.


The best time to visit Illinois is from April through May and September to October. Illinois experiences a humid continental climate and attracts all types of tourists. Peak season is during the summer time so if your conference falls then, you might want to book your hotels+flights in advance. Offseason is from November to March.
