Waukegan, Illinois, located along the banks of Lake Michigan, is just far enough from the hustle and bustle of The Windy City while maintaining enough local charm to satisfy the most jaded of city slickers. Flights to Waukegan will bring visitors into Chicago's O'Hare Airport (ORD). After a quick drive up I-94, you'll be in the city made famous in the novels of famed Waukeganite Ray Bradbury. Whether you're angling for a chartered fishing trip on the lake or hoping to see a show at the historic Genesee Theatre, Waukegan has a little something for everyone.
ORD is the busiest airport in the Midwest and is centrally located with many people flying in from all over the world. As a result, there are plenty of options to get to your final destination. The option that allows for the most freedom is a rental car, and there are about a dozen rental companies spread out across ORD's terminals so weary travelers fresh off their Waukegan flights can practically hop right into a waiting car. There are also taxi stands located just outside each terminal's baggage claim, making getting a cab to Waukegan super easy. There are hotels in Waukegan as well as up and down I-94 and surrounding ORD, so those visiting the area will have no shortage of places to stay.
You can also take public transportation—it's a cheap and environmentally conscious way to get around. The regional Metra train runs out of ORD and north to Waukegan, but a bus transfer is necessary once in town.
Travelocity has cheap Waukegan tickets as well as tons of options for Waukegan vacation packages that are sure to please the most finicky of travelers. And for those travelers on a budget, don't forget that you can save up to $537 when you book a hotel and flight at the same time.
