Travel

BY AIR

For our guests traveling by plane, flying into Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa or Quad City International Airport (MLI) in Moline, Illinois are the closest to Iowa City and the venue.  CID: 30 minute drive to downtown.  MLI: 1 hour drive to downtown. While there are no direct flights, a quick connection in Chicago easily gets you there.  If you'd rather drive directly from Chicago and avoid the connection, Iowa City is about 3.5 hours from O'Hare International Airport (ORD) in Chicago, Ilinois

When booking your travel, the earlier the better in terms of getting the best fare.

CAR RENTAL

Iowa City is a walkable college town. There is a shuttle from the airport - Marco's Taxi ($30-$40) from Cedar Rapids - and we will provide shuttles to and from the venue on the day of the wedding. However, if you'd like some more freedom to explore, there are a plethora of car rental places at the airport. 

*If coming from Moline or Chicago, a car rental is necessary.
