Leaning Tower of Niles

By Linda Tancs

Wondering what to do on a long layover at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport?  The Leaning Tower of Niles is always an option.  Just 15 minutes away from the airport, Pisa’s half-sized replica was built some 600 years after the original by a local businessman.  Unlike the original, it’s anchored in concrete to hold its characteristic tilt.  After your visit, grab a bite to eat at the world’s first franchised McDonald’s about 10 minutes away.  Who says layovers have to be boring?
