Campus; lively Navy Pier; a resurrected North Loop theater 
district; and a "who's who" of luxury shopping destinations 
along the city's fabled Magnificent Mile. A busy convention 
trade has sparked hotel construction, and the city's eclectic 
mix of restaurants has gained an international reputation
for excellence.

Chicago Air and Water Show
The oldest and biggest exhibition of its kind in the country, 
the Air and Water Show displays daredevil acrobatics both in 
the air and water. It can be viewed from many lakeside locations, 
but the main hub is above and beyond North Avenue Beach. 
Both civilian and military demonstrations take place and 
electrifying stunts are performed, the highlight being the 
US Navy Blue Angels' jet formation.
