Walkabout Series Sweet Home Chicago using O Hare Airport....

a little fast guide going from ohare airport to downtown chicago using the cta subway train.


time to enjoy those couds as you fly into ohare...


get ready to land..the sweet second city is waiting for you.


After the customs line, look for the cta signs....


Cta uses the Ventra card system...use the self Kisoks to purchase one...





after the train ride to downtown, a central vista place is the washington stop..




Ohare airport is on the blue line....Midway airport is on the orange line....the red line is a good north to south subway line..most of the subway lines are elevated or above ground.

Only in Chicago..use the red line...catch a Cubs baseball game around 1 PM...then take the red line and watch the Sox baseball game around 7PM...
