My daughter's boyfriend and I will be staying at a nearby hotel.
They offer a free shuttle service to the graduation. Does the shuttle actually go all the way to graduation site?
Also anyone know how far it is from Burkey Mall to the graduation site. We will not have a rental car.
We are debating the rental car as well . Since our daughter will be flying to A school after PIR, there is no point in staying around..
The shuttle will take you to the gate for graduation, you walk in from there. The mall is about a mile from base, but walking from one to the other not really an option. Some lack of sidewalks, busy four, five and six lanes of traffic, etc.
Renting a car really is the easiest, and can/may end up being the least expensive too.
Do look into the Chicago Metra from Chicago OTC to just about whatever town you are staying in. The train is approx $7 per person. You can buy a weekend pass for a couple dollars more. If your city isn't on the stop you can probably catch a cab from the station to wherever. You might even ask your hotel if the have shuttles from the train.
You want to look at the Union Pacific North schedule.
If the greyhound runs to Waukegan that is perfect then. I couldn't find that stop on the greyhound site though. I'll call them to find it
Thank you for the info!
Thank you for the information. This could be a great option for us!
Be careful of Uber in Great Lakes during the weekend. We have heard from some that they are charging a premium price during the weekend.
