By air:

Chicago has two airports: O'Hare and Midway. Most flights go to
O'Hare, which is also the most convenient to Evanston.

To get from O'Hare to Evanston, the following options are available:

Taxi: The fare from O'Hare to Evanston should be about $25.

Bus Service: Continental Air Tranport (312-454-7799) and Larry Webb
Bus Service (312-866-7163) leave O'Hare for Evanston every hour from
the American Airlines baggage area. Each line will take you to the
Omni Orrington Hotel in Evanston. The Holiday Inn is 3 blocks south
of the Orrington.

Public Transportation: The CTA (1-800-972-7000) "El" trains run from
O'Hare to downtown Chicago, and from Chicago to Evanston. Follow the
airport signs to locate the O'Hare "El" stop. The fare is $1 per
person. Take the "El" to the Washington St. stop, which is the end of
the line. Transfer to a Northbound train. Take this train to the
Howard St. Station. Transfer to a Northbound Evanston train. Get off
at the Davis St. station in Evanston. To get to the Holiday Inn, walk
east to Sherman Ave., turn right and go south two blocks. To get to
the Orrington, walk east to Orrington Ave., turn left and go north one
block. This trip will take at least an hour. It's reasonably safe
but we don't recommend it because of the aggravation involved.

By car:

To get to Evanston, take Dempster St. east from either the Tri-State
Tollway (I-294) or the Edens Expressway (I-94). Follow Dempster east
to Chicago Ave. (one block past the "El" train overpass). Turn left
on Chicago and go north. To get to the Holiday Inn, turn left on
Grove St., go one block west. To get to the Orrington, turn left on
Davis St., go one block west to Orrington, turn right and go one and a
half blocks north to the hotel.

By train:

Amtrack trains stop at Union Station in downtown Chicago. Walk 4
blocks north on Canal St. to the Chicago & Northwestern Commuter Train
Station. Take a Northbound train to the Davis St. station in
Evanston. Directions from there to the hotels are as from the "El"
