Love the layover: Chicago

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to find out exactly what’s going on in a city when you touch down at the airport?

Well, for the next six months, when you touch down at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport you’ll be able to find out what’s going on in town at two “Explore Chicago” lounges promoting the City of Chicago’s tourism website.


The lounges have these HP Touchsmart PCs, comfortable seating (always appreciated) and giant, GigaPan ultra high-resolution panoramas showing iconic Chicago locations including the skyline, Millennium Park, and the interior of the Field Museum.

In addition to the Touchsmart PCs, there are a few computers that let you explore NASA’s website.


The lounges are in Terminal 2; another 50 Touchsmart PC’s are scattered throughout the airport.
