Chicago Air & Water Show
You simply cannot miss this summer staple in Chicago: the annual Air & Water Show! Scheduled typically late in August, the Air & Water Show is the largest free show of it's kind in the United States. It can be viewed along the lakefront from Fullerton to Oak Street, with North Avenue being the main viewing point. The event is ideal for families and also for cozying up on the lake with your honey. There are a variety of aircrafts on display at this yearly event including both civilian and military aircraft. As a tip, be sure to get to the lakefront early - this event is one of the most popular of the summer in Chicago and prime viewing areas do fill up quickly.
