Dear Traveler:

Chicago is already the greatest city in the world, but when you throw in warm temperatures, magical events and cruises along beautiful Lake Michigan, you’ll quickly realize Summertime Chi is a season within itself that cannot be topped anywhere else.

Iconic music festivals like the Chicago Blues Fest and Lollapalooza provide the soundtrack for Chicago’s summer and the diversity of our 77 neighborhoods is on full display as each community welcomes the summer in its own unique way through street fairs and weekly neighborhood events. See the Summer Event Guide (pg. 26) to find the perfect celebration for you.

Welcome to Chicago! 

On behalf of the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA), welcome to O’Hare and Midway International Airports. You couldn’t have picked a better time to travel through our airports and visit our beautiful city! 

Thanks to Mayor Brandon Johnson and his commitment to Chicago’s airports, we are currently embarking on a very exciting journey. 

Over the past year, our airports have shown strong growth. At Midway, passenger levels exceed pre-pandemic levels with a 5.5% increase in travelers compared to 2019. And at O’Hare, several capital improvement projects are in the works. From new restaurants and retail shops to expanded passenger amenities, you will be happy to see the changes we have made and will continue to make to offer travelers like you the best possible passenger experience. Check out some of the happenings At the Airport (pg. 14).
