Gary might technically be situated in Indiana, but for all intents and purposes it is a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. Tucked into the northwestern-most point of Indiana, the city first got its name on the map in the early 1900s as part of the flourishing steel industry. But being the childhood home to the King of Pop and the rest of the Jackson Five is what really added the city to the annals of American culture.
It's easy to get here, and all flights to Gary arrive at Gary Chicago International Airport (GYY), about 5 miles northwest of the town center. GYY is a relatively small airport, and it's a snap to arrange transportation after your Gary flights arrive. You can rent a car at the airport—or in advance through Travelocity—or hail a taxi just outside the terminal in order to get to your accommodations. Once you're settled in one of the Gary hotels near the airport, head out for a relaxing day on the beach or some retail therapy in the Lake Street Shopping District.
