About Chicago Midway Airport 

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. 

Things to do 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.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
