Planning a RTW trip is a long process that takes a lot of time and effort, and figuring out your itinerary is one of the most difficult parts. Our sister site over at BootsnAll has a special section dedicated to planning a RTW trip, and if this is something you are interested in, the resources on BootsnAll are extremely beneficial.
Adding Chicago to any trip itinerary is a no-brainer. The food, the friendly people, the architecture, the bars, the sports, the culture – all can keep any traveler busy for days, weeks, months, even years. Because O’Hare is such a huge, international airport, RTW travelers can easily add Chicago to any itinerary. Flights from Chicago go all over the world, and getting to the next destination on your trip should be both easy and cheap.
The aspects that bring travelers to Chicago on a regular basis are major highlights that extended travelers should consider as well. Many RTW travelers tend to look for something a little different, a little unique, a little more indie. Sure, seeing the Sears Tower and wandering around on Michigan Avenue is fun for anyone, but for those looking to get off the beaten path a bit more, Chicago has plenty to offer. Getting out of the main downtown area is always a good idea for those looking to do as the locals do, and Chicago is no different. The destination guides over at BootsnAll look at cities from a RTW perspective. So be sure to read all the tips we have for adding Chicago to your RTW trip itinerary.
