Travel Complaint – It costs too much to visit Chicago, I need a city that meets my budget constraints.
Many travelers begin their trip by first weeding out the cities which they think are out of their budget. While it may be more difficult to travel to Paris than Washington DC on a budget, it is far from impossible. The city of Chicago ranks as one of the 50 most expensive cities in the world. That being said, you can still enjoy this amazing city without breaking the bank. Island Trader Vacations complaints reviews the top tips to help you travel Chicago on a budget. Make your budget work for you when you travel.
Don’t waste your budget on transportation – Last minute seats on flights may get you there for less but you face the risk of not getting a ticket or even paying more. If you live near a city which has access to a Megabus, this is a great option to save money on travel as well. Once you get to Chicago, you can make your way around the city easily without a car. Chicago offers one of the best mass transit systems in the country. When traveling in the city, take advantage of the public transportation.
Get out of the city to save money on accommodations – Choosing a hotel in the heart of the city may be convenient, but in Chicago, you will pay for convenience. Instead, head to the Loop on weekends (they cater to business travel and you may find a deal), or get outside to the suburbs to find a great deal. You may have to rent a car to do this but you can park it and take public transportation in the city and will likely still save money.
Check out the free sites – In large cities including Chicago there are plenty of free sites to explore. Top free sites in Chicago worth checking out include the Lincoln Park Zoo, Grant Park which almost always has something free going on in summer and always offers great views, Navy Pier, Millennium Park and the Garfield Park Conservatory are also worth a look. In addition, many museums offer “free days” each month, but the lines can be lengthy. See the beaches, enjoy the festivals, take a walk and enjoy the city on a budget.
Eat like a local – Chicago offers plenty of cost effective foods to choose from. One popular way to enjoy eating like a local is to try a hot dog or even a slice of pizza. Chicago is famous for its street fare and its deep dish pizza. Save money and enjoy Chicago cuisine when you travel.
Take advantage of discount coupons and cards – From the GO Chicago Card to discount tickets to Six Flags, there are plenty of discounts for travel to Chicago. When considering the GO Card, be sure you plan your vacation experience so you ensure that it offers destinations that you would like to see.
