|Subject: Re: Weekend in Chicago|
Public transportation from that part of the city is very easy--buses operate on all main streets. If you are close to the lake, there are express buses that run on Lake Shore Drive. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) has an excellent website, which includes schedules, pass information, routes, etc: http://www.chicagotransitauthority.com
I'm sorry I am unfamiliar with accommodations outside of downtown, but I know there are other Ziners who will pitch in with that!
It has been a great year on the lake--hope it continues.
