If your destination is Illinois, then chances are Chicago is your entry point. Choosing to hire a car through Alamo means you can collect it the minute you land, making luggage handling a breeze. Alamo also boasts an excellent selection of comfortable cars and competitive prices and always aims to make every aspect of hiring a car as effortless as possible.
However you arrive in America's third-largest city, you might want to start your Chicago odyssey by driving on Lake Shore Drive (U.S. Highway 41), day or night, to get a glimpse of the magnificent skyline with three of America's tallest buildings, including the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower skyscraper - second tallest in the world. After that, explore the theatres, restaurants, galleries, architecture, museums and 29 beaches lying on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Take advantage of the opportunity to spend all day relaxing in Hyde Park or shopping down the Magnificent Mile. By night, try out the Jazz or Blues clubs or the Comedy bars. Families will find plenty of entertainment at the Field Museum, the Lincoln Park Zoo or Navy Pier. The pier is one of the most popular tourist destinations. It just out into the lake and is crowded with restaurants, shops, bars and a spectacular ferris wheel.
Don't miss the Willis Tower; the best time to visit is in the evening. 108 floors up on the Skydeck you can enjoy fantastic sunsets and breathtaking views that can take in four states on a clear day. Test your nerve by walking over the glass-floored balconies and look down on Chicago from 1450 ft (442 m) above.
Driving out of the city, you might want to explore one of only 20 UNESCO World Heritage sites in the U.S., the Cahokia Mounds, a prehistoric Native American city - the largest north of Mexico. The park is just off Interstate 55, and not far from the start of historic Route 66 that winds across the west to Santa Monica, California.
At Gurnee, 40 miles north on the I-94, you'll find Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor water park. If you're a roller coaster fan, this is paradise!
