Unless you are visiting family, it is probably not the best choice for a 10 day visit. Are you staying there because you want to go to Chicago?

I can't think of any place in Hammond these days where I would be compelled, much less interested, to go walking around at night, and I work in the area. And you're going to spend 10 nights there? The law of averages is not in your favor. Now, if I was staying at a hotel and my only worry was getting from my car to the hotel lobby and back to my car, that's a bit of a different story, depending on where the hotel is located.

Hammond’s a pit. Period. Watch your azz. Chances are if you need to ask/ you don’t belong there. The whole area needs to be handled with care.
