·   Where to live– Many affordable hotels can be found near the O’Hare airport that offers rates between $75 and $100. If you choose to live a little far from the downtown, then you can get some good deals on prices and also if you choose to travel in off season, chances are high that you end up getting a higher end hotel in a very reasonable price.

·   Free things to do– Chicago has many museums and out of them a few have free days when they charge no admission fee. Collect information about them and try n plan visiting them on the free day. The Lincoln Park offers free admission all year round and many other places like Museum of Contemporary Photography, Millennium Park, Grant Park, Garfield Park, Garfield Park Conservatory and more offer free admission year round. The cultural centre hosts art exhibitions and musical performances and doesn't charge any admission fees.

·  Affordable dining places– Chicago hot dogs are renowned and are very much inexpensive. No visit to Chicago can be considered complete without tasting the deep-dish pizza and is considered one of the best here.
