We've never been to Chicago before, but always wanted to visit Mt. Carmel Cemetery and the zoo, among other things. Is the cemetery within walking distance of the motel or can the shuttle take you there and pick you up later? We thought about flying to O'Hare, but we don't know our way around after that and don't know whether we need to rent a care or can just use a shuttle or other transportation. Chicago is SO big; certainly much, much bigger then any city here in North Carolina! You all sound like a nice location; is it a relatively safe area to walk about? ( No place is crime proof, I know) I look forward to hearing from you!
How easy is it to use the shuttle service from hotel to O'hare when leaving car at the hotel. And, what about from O'hare back to the hotel?
How complicated is it getting to downtown Chicago with children? Also we have an event at Wrigley Feild in the evening how world you recommending getting back to the hotel?
