I'm going to be arriving at Midway Airport at about 4:00 on a weekday afternoon, picking up a rental car and driving to Indianapolis. It's been a long, long time since my last visit to your city; I might as well be traveling there for the first time.

Can anyone suggest any tips for navigating the airport, and a route to take or avoid from Midway to Indianapolis? Google thinks I should take Route 90 to Route 65, but if anyone has another suggestion, I'm all ears.

Navigating the airport shouldn't be a problem. It's a rather small airport.

I-90 (aka the Skyway) is definitely the quickest route to Indiana at that time of day. It's also expensive ($3.50) but IMO it' worth it at rush hour. Take 55th Street/Garfield Boulevard or 59th Street over to 90/94, and then take 90 when they split. You'll be driving through some interesting neighborhoods.

As an alternate, north on Cicero to I-55, south to 294 (toll) to whatever it is that goes east to 65. Or I-55 north to the Dan Ryan, then south to 90. Those may be slower during rush hour, but do save lots of street driving.

Also $1.50 from the West Entry to I-65 on the Indiana toll road so $5. $3 to take 294 -> 94 -> 65. Time saved is well worth the $2 bucks.
