Which airport should we fly into? Midway or Ohara? My stepdaughter graduates on the eighteenth, we haven't bought plane tickets yet, but I have booked our room at the Days Inn Great Lakes. My first time ever flying or being at an airport. My husband has flown, but it has been awhile for him. So I am very nervous about the trip.Very excited to see her and can't wait, but I just hear alot of terrible things happening, so if anyone has any hints about the airports or even what is aloud, please let me know.

Thank you

MilitaryMom - I second the idea of checking out the prices for flying into Milwaukee.  We flew from South Mississippi to Milwaukee three years ago for our son's PIR.  At that time, Milwaukee was cheaper.  The airport was not huge, clean and easy to get in and out of.  Rented our car thru Hotwire.  Would definitely fly into Milwaukee if we had to do it again. Good luck!
We` are flying out of central Florida and found the airfares to Milwaukee were priced much better ............According to different websites the drive to GL is an easy straight shot...........Not much traffic but toll money is needed.......
Milwaukee is the way to go and it's a straight shot on the interstate to Great Lakes - and it's cheaper and it's a much smaller airport. Good luck!
