City Cycle Chicago Inc's staff members combine the duties of instructors with the gung-ho nature of enthusiasts; it's their stated goal to spread motorcycle awareness, safety, and love throughout the City of Chicago. They even help riders earn their licenses, going so far as to show up with a vehicle on the day of the DMV test to provide coaching and support. But renting out their fleet of scooters for recreational riding is what gets their operation the most kudos. They tout the rentals as the "best way to see the Windy City," a claim they live up to by delivering the scooter to your front door and by noting that it's easy to park one just about anywhere, such as between two cars or right inside the mayor's office.

Stationed right by O'Hare, PreFlight Airport Parking allows travelers to stow their rides for long or short durations. Three levels of parking are available, from rooftop spots to premium, covered parking on the first floor of the garage, as well as second and third level covered-parking. The facility is open 24 hours a day and includes other amenities such as free tire inflation and battery jumping, as well as charging stations for electric cars, the preferred mode of travel for Thomas Edison impersonators.
Parking the car is just one of the many hoops one has to jump through when traveling by air. While First Choice O'Hare Airport Parking can't help with waiting in security lines or convincing ticketing agents to let grandpa fly on your lap for free, it can lessen the annoyance of finding a suitable parking space while you are away. The indoor/outdoor lot is scarcely a block from the airport itself, and helps travelers get themselves to the curb on time with shuttles that run 24 hours a day.
There are treasures beyond belief under the waves. All across the Midwest, lakes large and small contain pieces of history, from a moss-coated dump truck at the bottom of Haigh Quarry to the schooner Thomas Hume, which has been a home to the fish of Lake Michigan since 1891. With favorite wet spots from Missouri to Minnesota, the teachers at Chicagoland Scuba are privy to it all. Whether offering first-time divers certification classes, leading diving trips, or learning how fish like to be hugged, exploring the underwater life is second nature to these pros—something they hope rubs off on their students, too.
The professionally trained drivers at A1 American Limousine chauffer passengers in a fleet of fancy carriages, easing airport transit or spicing up special events. Luxury sedans whisk travelers to O'Hare or Midway from downtown ($65 to/from either airport) and suburban destinations, such as Oak Forest ($70 to/from either airport), Park Ridge ($40 to/from O'Hare; $60 to/from Midway), and Deerfield ($45 to/from O'Hare; $70 to/from Midway). To sooth stresses after long flights, clients can opt for shuttle service from either airport to a destination of their choosing. When patrons touchdown, car conductors will be waiting in terminals with signs showcasing the passenger's name and a sketch of what the driver imagines the customer to look like. Once the sign attracts the proper person, the chauffer will carry the client's cargo to the car, and motor off to the specified destination. Even though the prices listed are base prices, customers should call ahead for personalized rates.
