There is a never-ending rotation of fun and exciting things to do in and around The Windy City, and each year countless visitors do their best to experience as much of Chicago as they can over the course of their stay. In today’s world full of ride share apps and on-demand transportation, it has become increasingly easy to get around and explore new cities. Still, if you plane on truly exploring Chicago, or anywhere new for that matter, the cost of fares to make the most of your visit can really begin to add up. In some cases, there is simply no substitution for having your own vehicle, rental or otherwise. Of course, in a city like ours, it can be difficult to find a Chicago hotel with free parking. Well fret no more. The Chicago Lake Shore Hotel boasts about being a Chicago hotel with free parking and has much more to offer than just that. Our comfortable rooms, lavish amenities, caring staff, and top-notch location make us one of the premiere hotels in the Chicago area. And now, being able to park for free, you can explore much of what this city has to offer on your own terms.
Cruise Lake Shore Drive
Arguably one of the most famous urban streets in the country, Lake Shore Drive is the perfect place to take a cruise – especially if you are staying in a Chicago hotel with free parking. The Drive runs parallel along the Lake Michigan shore right through the heart of The Windy City. Picturesque in its own right, Lake Shore Drive may seem even more familiar to you as it has appeared in more than a select few Hollywood hits. As you drive The Drive, keep an eye out for familiar scenes from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Blues Brothers, Risky Business, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and more!
Museums, Sports, Nightlife, and More
Having your own vehicle in the Chicago area also opens up a world of discovery in terms of museums, sporting events, nightlife and more. Chicago is home to a ton of world-class museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum of Natural History, the Chicago Children’s Musuem, the Shedd Aquarium, and many, many more. The NBA’s Chicago Bulls, NFL’s Bears, MLB’s Cubs and White Sox, and NHL’s Blackhawks all call the city home as well and host many home games during each of their respective seasons – providing the perfect opportunity to explore the city, tailgate, and attend a game on your own terms. Beyond that, the city’s nightlife is also top of the line with dance clubs, concert venues, hidden blues bars, and local haunts all worth a visit. By having a vehicle in town, and a free place to park it, you have essentially been given a key to the city!
