chicago

so, the wife is running in the Chicago marathon in October. I've only been there once and swore i'd never drive there again...not familiar w/the area at all.

we're considering taking Amtrak up. staying at the Hilton Chicago, which looks like it's pretty much right at the start/finish. according to google, it's 1.2 miles from the Amtrak station. wife says we can walk it to the hotel and back when we head home.

to those who are familiar w/the area, is this a good idea, or do you suggest we take a cab? the walk doesn't bother me as long as it's safe. I mean, she runs...I don't.

any answers/suggestions are appreciated.

thanks,
sec

My best friend takes Amtrak up from Kirksville (LaPlata) often. Their service is much better now that it has been in the past.

You'll definitely want to cab it, though. 1.2 miles = 12 blocks of hauling luggage. That would suck.

Other than that, doesn't sound like a bad idea. I hate driving up here and have been used to it for decades.

well, to be honest, all i'm carrying fits in a backpack. she's got all her shit in the suitcase and is the health fruitcake. if she can run 26.2 mi, surely she ought to be able to pull a suitcase on rollers for 1.2, but I see your point.

she's getting prices to ride up from quincy, but I don't know why...we're only 5miles from the laplata Amtrak station. I guess i'll mention it to her.

thanks,
sec

1.2 miles in Chicago = 2.75 hours = $200. Take the rail

Please be careful where you go. There have been over 500 murders this year and Rahm doesn't give a shit either. Granted the majority are gang murders but they are getting very bold and starting to move this gang crap outside of the hoods now.

Union Station and the area's he is referring to, they will be fine

That is all business / tourist area - the crime that goes on down there isn't murder
