Why do you specifically need to stop at Chicago. Stop in a town near the border in Indiana then you don't have to worry about Chicago. Then plan so you're driving through Chicago around 10am to Milwaukee. Don't try it earlier! If need be then stop north of Chicago near the Wisconsin border.

There's one in Fair Oaks, Indiana:

but a less expensive one in Portage, IN about 10 miles out of your way:

Wasn't planning on stopping in Chicago- just used that as a reference when looking for a park. I guess I threw some off when I said Southside- Where I'm from (Missouri) I've always taken that to mean somewhere on the southern side of wherever.
I can stay anywhere from northern (meaning north part) of Indiana to eastern (meaning east part of Illinois. I planned (originally) to hit one of the toll roads on the western (west) part of metropolitan Chicago. Thinking I-294 or I-355 and head toward Milwaukee.
There are a couple of recommendations out of these 3 pages of responses that I am considering.
All in all I appreciate most of the responses and will probably be ok with our chosen route and overnight stops.

Thanks all.

Yes, 294/355 are a much better choice. I'm not sure what is toll or not anymore. Just stay far, far away from Chiraq.

Safe travels.
