Chicago 10
If in Downtown Chicago be sure to visit Oak Steet Beach. Right at the northern end of Michigan Ave with all its High End Shopping called the Magnificant Mile...A Pleasent Surprise with a Tiki Bar Also on the Beach. To View Chicago in all its glory. Make sure you take a Boat ride on Lake Michigan. You can find boat tours from the Chicago River at Michigan Ave On either side of the river.

The Achitecual one also is Only on the River...Do the Lake trip..you won't be disappointed. Also you can Get Dinner Cruise Trips and Tall Mask Sailing Ship rides and others..from Navy Pier. Also a Walk on this tourist suprise is very nice. If you cannot do a Boat Ride Take a taxi or bus...

Great Hotels and Restaruants and Clean. Flowers planted showing its green and purhaps the Best shopping street high end in the US. Beaty with modern clean and flowers to walk among.Chicago has blossemed in the last 30yrs and renewed itself. It has become a not just business destination but vacation for the family as travel magazines make light of. It did overcome the period of decay some other...
