I have a hotel near ORD, planning on taking the train.
Is this a good idea?
It's doable, I would not call it a good idea. It's a long train ride from ORD to Lolla. A looooong train ride.
So you have to leave at least an hour before the time you want to get there at.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.
