Chicago Military Discounts

Chicago is truly a military-friendly town.  For US veterans, there are a bunch of great deals here in the city with your military ID.  We have tried to list a few below, but this list is by no means comprehensive.

- Free Museums and Landmarks: Use your military ID to get free admission to the world-class Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Chicago Art Institue, Museum of Science and Industry, Sears Tower, and Hancock Observatory

- Free Baseball: Use your military ID to get free admission to Chicago White Sox games (as long as they aren’t sold out…and they don’t sell out except for opening day)

- Free Chicago Transit Authority: Military ID cardholders should  visit http://www.transitchicago.com/travel_information/fares/military.aspx to find out how to get your CTA pass, which will allow you to travel on the El and city buses for free

- Metra train discounts: For those of you who are interested in living downtown and taking the Metra to school, show your military ID when purchasing your ticket for a ticket discount

- O'Hare International Airport: Make sure you bring your military ID when arriving back at O'Hare from your Random Walk or other trip abroad because there is a special military line at immigration

- No Cover Charge: Most Chicago establishments don’t have cover charges here, but those that do they will typically let you in for free if you show the bouncer your Military ID
