  • Highway Robbery: Illinois Toll Traps?

    by DavidBenAriel12 Written Jun 18, 2009

    Having just gone through the state of Illinois from Ohio en route to gladly see the Badlands, Custer State Park and Wind Cave in South Dakota (among other places), it now sadly appears I went through a toll trap state! Why? Today I received an appalling "Illinois Tollway Notice of Toll Violation" demanding $62.60! In Ohio and other states I've travelled through, it is impossible to bypass a toll. You get off at the exit you want and pay or you come to a complete stop and pay before continuing on. Everybody must stop. It's not that way in Illinois. Here it appears, driving at night, I bypassed three tolls since I didn't believe they were exits I wanted and kept on driving. I ...

  • The Untouchables Tour...zzzzzz

    by melissaK Written May 2, 2005

    We went on a gangsta tour of Chicago. It was totally boring. It is just a tour of Chicago from a guy with a fake accent and ugly suit showing you around. I felt so bad because most of our bus fell asleep, so I stayed awake.
    I was disappointed by the lack of gangsters mentioned in it. A few points were interesting but the rest was totally dull.

    Unique Suggestions: Actually pay attention. Try to learn something new and go at it with a positive attitude and a good night's rest the night before!

    But maybe this does interest you...

    Fun Alternatives: I don't know maybe just take a regular tour of Chicago. You'll probably get more out of it.

    Well, not really a tourist trap... but outside of Chicago, in Schaumburg, there is a huge shopping center, Woodfield Mall, plus all sorts of shops surrounding it. Commercial mecca if you will. Anyway, there's plenty of shopping and neat stores, and maybe worth a visit if you like it. However, the 'trap' comes in because there seemed to be a perpetual traffic jam on the expressway and local roads around it.
