If you need to fly, book a flight to O’Hare Airport. Union Park is very accessible via the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA). Via train, take the Green line to Ashland stop. Via bus, take the #9 Ashland bus.
North Coast Music Festival offers hotel/travel packages. If you don’t go this route, just remember you’re in Chicago! There are tons of lodging options for all budget types, although your best bet is to stay somewhere near Union Park so you can either walk or take a short ride on the city’s excellent public transportation system.
