Have you ever needed to just get out of the city for a few days to take a break and have a mini-adventure? I am sure I’m not alone when I say; I crave this more often throughout the year.
As careers keep us busy during the week, if we don’t take a break at some point (aside from weekends), we became, in my opinion, mundane. So this is exactly the reason I hopped on a plane mid-week to spend a few days in another city.
With non-stop flights between Vancouver and Chicago, it makes it super easy to plan this getaway. Fly coach or opt for the Premium Economy upgrade with a touch more leg room. And the flight times make for planning dinner and drinks upon arrival completely do-able. You’ll feel as refreshed arriving as you did leaving, as the flight is just 3.5 hours long.
Upon arriving in Chicago you have 3 great options for getting into the city: 1. You can hire a taxi; 2. You can register and get the Uber app and take Uber – both these options are approx. 30-60 minutes depending on traffic. Or 3. You can take the Rapid Transit Train (blue line), which is approximately 45 minutes to downtown.
…That’s not the end of this article! I’ve started another writing venture with a few wine writer friends of mine – so please click on our website: CORK AFFAIRS to read the rest of this travel article, as I have much to share about Chicago.
