Getting Here

If you’re planning to fly into Chicago, you’ll have two different options for your arrival: O’Hare and Midway. Both are large international airports that sit just outside of the city. Public transportation does run to each airport, and taxis to and from downtown Chicago to either one will cost you between $30-$45.

Urban Philosophy is a way of thinking that you develop when you’re a true city person. Whether you’ve spent your whole life living in Manhattan, or you just moved from small-town Iowa to the city of Chicago, the longer you stay, the more you come to understand what it means to live in a city. Our Urban Philosophy is that no matter who you are, where you are from, and what your likes and dislikes may be, there’s something for everyone in city life.
