Luxury Car Rentals Chicago and Northerly Island
You are walking along a path at Northerly Island on your luxury car rental vacation and suddenly you spot something. You arenít exactly sure what it is, but it kind of looks like a small animal. You can hear the birds chirping around you and you are enjoying the views of nature as you walk. You are taking everything in, but now you want to know what this little animal is. Itís bustling about in the bushes, but you can tell itís not very big at all. You see a tail and it looks to you like a chipmunk perhaps. You take a peanut out of your pocket and hold it out to get the animal to come closer. The chipmunk scurries up to your hand and jumps right onto your palm. You take a picture and that is a simple moment that you will have to remind you of your trip to Northerly Island. This park is a great place to visit with your family or if you just want some alone time. Itís great for relaxing and taking your minds off the everyday cares of life. Check out Northerly Island on your luxury car rental vacation.

Taking it all in
Northerly Island was planned and designed by architect Daniel H. Burnham. He had a vision of what the island should be and he saw it as a point at the northernmost end of a long stretch of little islands that were manmade. He wanted it to include lots of beaches, recreation areas, lagoons and harbors. He also wanted people to be able to drive along and have the chance to see a great sight: the Chicago skyline. He wanted Northerly Island to begin with trees and bushes, walkways and trails for people to follow. Burnham also wanted to include a parking lot for people who wanted to get out and enjoy nature along a walk and there was also the 12th Street Beach near here. In 1947, though, an airport opened up called Meigs Field and soon there was an air control tower being built. Finally, after a 50 year lease had expired on the airport, the Northerly Island opened to what it is today. Burnhamís dream of this beautiful and serene place was coming true. It now includes those trees, paths and views of the skyline that Burnham wanted so long ago. On your future luxury car rental vacation, visit Northerly Island in the Chicago Park District for a taste of something amazing.
