If you have never flown in or out of here, then you better assume you need at least an extra hour of time then you thought you did. For some reason, it always seems that your plane is at the last terminal, which inevitable takes over a half hour to walk to and from. Billed as the world's busiest airport, there can be no doubt that, in fact, it is. Opened in 1955, the airport quickly became the world's largest transportation hub and the flurry of activity inside certainly reflects this. You can get here easily from the Loop with the CTA's Blue Line, which is often faster (and cheaper) than either a limo or taxi. If you are flying internationally you will have to take the monorail to the international terminal. Otherwise, the Blue Line lets you off right in the domestic terminal, unbeatable for convenience. Although there has been constant talk of adding a third airport to alleviate the crowds and stress of O'Hare, you will still find that things run pretty smoothly, and most airlines are as accommodating as possible when unexpected surprises do occur.
