At first glance, Chicago's densely urban downtown and industrial corridor give off an undeniably gray impression. Look a little closer and you'll notice one of the most vibrant green spaces lining the shores of Lake Michigan. Venture out from the centrally located “Loop” and you'll find some of the most distinctive and charming neighborhoods. With so many distinctive areas and a seriously underrated slate of cultural and culinary offerings, the “Second City” plays second fiddle to no one.

Why choose Bounce to store luggage in Chicago?

Bounce partners with 94 trusted local businesses in Chicago

  • We're everywhere: There's a Bounce luggage storage service around every corner, from Hyde Park and Chinatown to the south, Wicker Park and Logan Square to the west, and Uptown and Wrigleyville to the north. Of all the Chicago luggage storage options, Bounce’s network covers all the coveted locations.
  • Support small businesses: Aside from being friendly and helpful, the attendants at Bounce partner businesses offer a local touch that you simply won't get from coin-operated lockers. When you show up at the luggage storage location to drop the bags off, you'll show the attendant your QR code confirmation, but feel free to ask any questions about local restaurants or neighborhood tips.

Popular places for bag storage in Chicago

Main transportation hubs in Chicago

Luggage storage at Chicago O'Hare International Airport

One of the busiest in the world, Chicago O’Hare Airport is located on the far northwest side of the city. It's served by the CTA Blue Line train that runs from downtown and the Loop through neighborhoods like Wicker Park and Logan Square. With easy access via public transportation, it's incredibly easy to get to sightseeing or your accommodations upon arrival. 

Luggage storage at Chicago Midway International Airport

Situated on the southwest side and accessible by the CTA Orange Line L Train, Midway is the smaller of the two airports, but still a huge hub for Southwest Airlines. You'll find plenty of convenient locations nearby when you use our app to find the airport's nearest luggage storage facilities.

Luggage storage at Chicago Union Station

The train station, unfortunately, does not offer bag storage of any kind. That’s why Bounce's nearby locations are so useful for travelers to safely store items when arriving in Chicago by regional and national trains. Union Station is situated a few blocks west of the Chicago River and is walkable from both the trendy West Loop neighborhood and the Loop.

Main hotspots in Chicago

Luggage storage at the Art Institute

One of the largest army museums in the country, Chicago's iconic Art Institute is a must-visit for enthusiasts. It's located just east of the Loop between the grid of skyscrapers and the verdant Millennium Park. With some of the most iconic paintings and sculptures at your fingertips, a trip to Chicago without a stop at the Art Institute would be a mistake.

Luggage storage at Wrigley Field

One of America’s most famous baseball stadiums, the ivy-covered Wrigley Field is the home of the Chicago Cubs. Formerly Chicago’s “lovable losers,” the Cubs recently won the World Series in 2016, and their popularity with both out-of-town fans and locals makes it an incredible sports viewing experience. With Wrigley Field’s strict bag policies, Bounce’s Wrigleyville luggage storage spot is very useful on game day. 

How to stow your bags in Chicago with Bounce

Depending on your travel plans, there's a good chance you end up in the downtown Chicago area (otherwise known as “the Loop”) or one of the surrounding trendy neighborhoods. Instead of wasting time by heading right to the hotel to drop the bags off, you might want to hit a Chicago museum or get to that Cubs game. Bounce makes it easy to find luggage storage services nearby and drop the bags off in no time.

  • Easily find luggage storage in Chicago: Using the Bounce mobile app or website, you can use the handy search function to find luggage storage locations near travel hotspots or transit facilities. Once you've found your spot, you can book ahead of time or even on the go. Once you book, there are no hidden fees or additional surcharges assessed at the storage spot.
  • Fast check-in: All you'll have to do is show your QR confirmation code to the attendant at the luggage deposit location, and they'll take it from there.
  • Explore Chicago luggage-free: Once you’re bag-free, head to Chicago's lakefront, a sports arena, breweries, and world-class restaurants, or simply explore a new neighborhood.

Chicago is one of those cities that everyone should visit at least once. If you’re going to head to the Windy City, it’s highly recommended you do it in July as opposed to January. It’s equally advisable to find a place to store the bags at one of our luggage storage locations so you can get around more easily.
