Default Chicago weenies, need travel advice.

Flying into ORD for a wedding next weekend. After the wedding I need to get from ORD to union station so I can catch a train outta town. What are my options? Does the L run from the airport to downtown? I don't mind a little walking. Hopefully I can do a little sight seeing after the wedding, but I have a pretty full itinerary already (Seattle, to Chicago, to Detroit, to northern Michigan, back down to rural PA before flying from Pittsburgh back to Seattle)

Oh yeah metra you good, union station is the hub, so it take you there. And you can leave the station if.you have time and sight see. You'll take the pace or O'Hare shuttle and it will bring you to station.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I was ready to take the blue line until I got a call from my brother who offered to drive down to Chicago and pick us up on the caveat that I take him out and get him **** faced.




Somehow I think this will be more expensive than if I just rented a Ferrari for the week

NCS is a M-F line only

Sounds like him picking you up is the better way to go anyhow.
