Blown away in the Windy City

The many faces of Chicago are enough to keep you entertained and enjoying life for days on end. Hop on an architectural river boat tour, fill up on tacos in Pilsen, visit Brookfield Zoo, and hit a world-class comedy show — that’s just one day in Chicago, one of America’s premier major cities.

With a plethora of interactive museums, a thriving live music scene, and over 50 neighborhoods to explore, maximize your time by booking a Chicago car rental alternative so you can spin around town and pack in the fun.

Chicago favorites

Chicago has been a bustling city for centuries, so hop in a car for a taste of the past and the present.

Millennium Park

Go see Anish Kapoor’s famed Cloud Gate sculpture (aka The Bean) and the striking Crown Fountain with close proximity to downtown, then stroll down to Lake Michigan for some coastal exploration and relaxation.

Wrigley Field

The ivy-covered walls of the Chicago Cubs’ legendary stadium give it that old-school baseball vibe, but with all of the quality concessions that make a luxurious day at the ball game.

The Green Mill

Originally established in 1907, it’s one of the oldest and most beautiful bars in the city, and you can still sidle in for excellent jazz and poetry slams.

Skip the car rental counter

Hit the road

When you’ve had your share of Chi-town shopping on Michigan Avenue, head out to see what the surrounding Chicagoland area has to offer.

Book the perfect car
Find a parking garage instead of street parking in downtown Chicago

Starved Rock State Park

Hop in your Chicago car rental alternative for the quick 100-mile drive to this beautiful park, well known for its many dramatic sandstone canyons and waterfalls carved about by glaciers.

Indiana Dunes National Park

Book your preferred type of vehicle and make the hour and a half drive to the southern shores of Lake Michigan to find pristine beaches, towering sand dunes, fishing opportunities, and wild marshland.

Milwaukee, WI

Smaller than Chicago, but arguably just as fun, Milwaukee is home to all variety of festivals and museums, proud sports teams, and renowned breweries — and it’s only a two-hour drive north in a Chicago car rental alternative.

Built in 1926, this historic drive still boasts some sections of brick-paved road, and for a blast from the past, pull your Chicago car rental alternative into a retro diner or filling station.

Galena, IL

Head 150 miles east from Chicago to find this hilly area full of stunning vistas and exciting twists and turns that will let your Chicago car rental alternative show its stuff.
