With over 2.7 million people living in Chicago, you know it has to be a great place. The Chicago Midway Airport is in the southern section of the city and has been there since 1927. It started out as just a small 320-acre spot with one small runway made of cinder mostly used for airmail flights. Today, the airport is so large, it is like a city within a city. In fact, it is the second-largest airport in the Chicago area and serves over 22 million people per year.
Whether you are heading out of town, coming into town, or just passing through, there is a ton of things to do at the airport. If you are hungry, head to the Concourse A Food Hall, where you can find a plethora of different eateries from fine dining to fast food. If you want to buy some souvenirs, gifts, or other items, the Central Market is the place to be, which is in between Concourse A and B. Stressed out? Concourse C has a yoga room, mother’s room, and chapel. No matter what you are looking for, you can find it somewhere in Chicago Midway Airport.
You may not expect an airport to be a fun place to visit, but many locals come to the Chicago Midway Airport just to hang out. Some of the restaurants and bars are favorites of the locals, and there are other fun things to do here as well. Don’t miss the local artist's section or the 45,000 square feet of concessions in the airport. There is even a memorial/museum to the Battle of Midway to explore. Here are some of Bounce’s favorites:
Watch the airplanes. This may seem like a boring activity, but watching planes take off and land can be very exciting. And it’s free!
Airport Art is a big thing here at Chicago Midway. Chicago’s public art program boasts some of the best local art and sculptures from spots all over the city you can find around the airport.
If you need a place to relax or recharge, head for the Yoga Room in Concourse C by the Mother’s Room. With a bamboo floor, exercise mats, and frosted glass windows, this room is the perfect place to do some deep breathing or just close your eyes for a bit.
As mentioned above, the Mother’s Room is on Concourse C right next to the Yoga Room. Those who are nursing their babies are welcome to relax here and feed their young ones in a more private area.
Learn about the Battle of Midway at the airport’s memorial of the World War II battle that took place just after Pearl Harbor. Located in Concourse A, you can see a multi-media display where you can find out little known facts about the battle.
Take a walk down the small hallway past the Battle of Midway to see a grouping of “In Case You Missed It” photos. See many of the Chicago landmarks that you may have missed during this trip.
If you or a member of your family is in the military, stop at the USO in Concourse C, just past security. You’ll enjoy free food and drinks, Wi-Fi, movies and local television, and free reading materials.
For those who need a few minutes of silent prayer or contemplation, the chapel is located on Concourse C above the triangle food court. Rosaries, rugs, and prayer books are available as well.
Enjoy Chicago cuisine at one of the 38 eateries in the airport. Choose from eight full-service restaurants and 30 counter service and kiosks all over the airport. While most of the eateries are at the Concourse A Food Hall, there are kiosks and counters just about everywhere.

I needed luggage storage near to Union Station in Chicago so this was as close as it gets. I was a bit put off by the neighborhood and the storefront but the gentlemen who were running the establishment were helpful with a good sense of humor at my difficulty figuring out how to run the app. I had it downloaded on my phone but didn't know how to maneuver it to show them what they wanted. This is a convenience-type of store that sells everything imaginable (and unimaginable as well) but I felt welcome and didn't have any reason to worry about my luggage. I didn't see anything that looked like a restaurant but there was a lot of snack food. I'd use them again.
Great experience at Americana Submarine in Chicago. The guys were very nice and took great care of my things. Will definitely use this service again!
My experience at the Wheeler mansion was positive, but I wish we'd received a bit more drop-off instructions prior to arrival in Chicago. The Wheeler mansion is gated and we were not aware at first that it was okay to open the gate and go right up to the house.
