Anyone know of a good parking garage/spot in Chicago?

I'm heading to Chicago from May 21 - May 25. I'd rather not park on the street overnight...

Does anyone have any recommendations or good experience at any garages in the Chicago area?

My whip is lowered and I've got aftermarket wheels.

Any and all advice is appreciated!

Thanks!

Mike you're an IDIOT!

He's looking to PARK his car, not take pictures of it.





Hey Flukey where are you staying when you visit? I guess that would kinda dictate where you want to park it.

I'm actually going to be staying in Joliet, but will be in the city for a couple days. My buddy is going to be there with his vehicle as well, so having my vehicle close by is not actually necessary. I'd prefer something on the side of Chicago closest to Joliet, but safety and ability to park my lowered car is most important.

hmmm I would suggest first and foremost to NOT park on the side of Chicago closest to Joilet.

For 1, Joilet is like an hour away from downtown.
2, You're not going to find any parking garages on the city's SW side and if there are, they probably aren't in an area that I'd want to be leaving my car in anyway.

I would suggest if you plan on going into downtown, park in the loop or on the north side, depending on where you go. If you want to park in while in Joilet, I would personally recommend Harrah's Casino. Its safe, patrolled and plenty of room to find a quite spot.

As for the city, take your pick cuz most all of them are identical and over priced. I usually park on Ohio St right next to Pizzeria Uno and ESPNZone (Ohio St and Wabash).

Don't worry too much, you're not going to find somewhere that has employees that take your car out for a joy ride like in Ferris Buhler.
