    I travel in strange cities all the time and I cannot recommend strongly enough that you get your hands on a good GPS system - one that comes with the ability to give you real time delays and provide detours around them. Borrow one if you have to for that night but play with it a day before to get used to it (I used to use the rental car systems but now I just use the one that comes with my phone)

    That said, the simplest routes will keep you off any streets except Cicero - you should end up getting on i-55 briefly and taking a direct Cicero exit. You should be able to essentially retrace your route straight back

    Do not take 56th... Like RRd said stay on the expressways.

    Take 90-94 up to i- 55 west to Cicero airport entrance on the right 3 miles down. Going back out of the airport is a little tricky just follow the to I-55 signs..

    This is the only way to go

    The L one way is cheap. I think 2.25? I wouldn't stay near midway if you had the choice

    I should tell you it's the yellow line since your a lions fan.. But, it's the orange... Do not stay in midway.. They built a couple decent hotels there now like the Hampton, but the area is the Mexican ghetto. There is nothing around. If you tell me what you want to spend on a hotel, I can tell you the best place to stay

    Orange Line and it is 2.25 each person, each way. I have never had a problem on an El (although you hear some stories) and the route you are taking should mainly be populated with other people who flew in. On the other hand, if you m aking a weekend of it (and there is no snow storm) I'd spring for a cab, at least on the way back. Cab should get you back downtown in 15-20 minutes versus while the El would be more like 45-60 minutes. If your girl will have been gone for quite a while by the time you pick her up at Midway, that extra thirty minutes might be a big deal

    There's parts of the southside that are nice, like Mount Greenwood. And honestly the airport motels right by midway are fine. If you need to stay by midway and you want somewhere that's legitimately nice just book yourself at the Hilton Oak Lawn on 95th & Cicero. Get some Fox's pizza while you're there it's right across the street.

    Go home Brendan, you're drunk.
