Question about walking in Chicago

So, as I mentioned before, my brother is donating me his frequent flier tickets on Southwest so I can fly out there. Midway is the airport I would be flying into. Is this the right one?

Also, what would a good hotel be to stay in? Soon to be DH is coming as well, and staying the whole time while I'm walking, so someplace that is easy to get to the starting point from would be great. Where is the walk done at? Actually "in" Chicago or in the 'burbs?

I am thinking of walking in Chicago Click here to enlarge I haven't done the walk before, but the walk typically starts in Wisconsin and goes through northern part of Illinois ending by the lakefront of Chicago.

Midway is a fine airport to fly into. It is much less congested than O'Hare and easier to manage. Are you renting a car? Let me think about the hotel. Do you have a price range?

Midway is in the South Suburbs of Chicago, around Cicero and I55. You will then have to rent a car and drive up to Wisconsin - Kenosha to be exact. I am not sure if Southwest goes into Milwalkee, but you might be better that way. I think Milwalkee is 45 minutes from Kenosha, where Midway will take you about an hour 15+.

OR you could just go into Midway as it will be the best place for you to return too at the end of the walk. The walk ends up in downtown Chicago - one of the Lincoln Parks. So he will have to drive up to Wisconsin with you and drive down to Chicago where we end.

Kat, I will post my phone number up in the uber secret room and feel free to give me a call at anytime.

Cool! - Alias, my brother is getting me a free hotel room, but it needs to be a Hilton hotel. I will have him find me something in downtown Chicago. SO will be with me, so we'll get a car and drive to the starting point.
