2018 PIC/S Annual Seminar

Sights Worth Seeing
Here, you can walk out onto the water of Lake Michigan with a visit to Navy Pier and its many rides, restaurants, theaters, and shops. Visit The Ledge at Skydeck Chicago in the Willis Tower, and you can practically walk on air more than 1,000 feet in the sky. 360 CHICAGO offers its own variety of breathtaking views of the city and lake. And perhaps Chicago's most out-of-this-world experience is right back at ground level in the form of Millennium Park. The Park's Cloud Gate sculpture ("The Bean"), Pritzker Pavilion, Crown Fountain and other fascinating features are like nothing you've ever seen. Of course, the same could be said for the city as a whole.

The City of Broad Horizons
Wtih 60 museums that engage and enlighten, Chicago's horizons may be even broader than its shoulders. The world-renowned Art Institute of Chicago has a vast collection, including the most impressionist works outside the Louvre. And the Museum of Contemporary Art puts the thought-provoking art of today front and center. Art museums are just a fraction of what Chicago has to offer. Located on the picturesque Museum Campus, The Field Museum is a treasure trove of natural history and home to the most complete T. rex skeleton ever discovered. Right nearby, you'll find 32,500 animals at the Shedd Aquarium and countless stars at Adler Planetarium, America's first. For science buffs, the Museum of Science & Industry is hard to top. Impossible perhaps. It's the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere. So whatever your interest, Chicago has a museum or two to enhance it.

Natural Beauty Among Man-Made Wonders

Just imagine: twenty-six miles of uninterrupted lakefront nestled against undoubtedly one of the most magnificent skylines. And that's not all we've got. The lakefront includes 16 miles of sandy beaches and an 18-mile stretch of bike path. Bikers, boaters, sunbathers and volleyball players abound. Turn to Chicago's green space and you'll find even more activity. There are hundreds of beautifully maintained parks, such as Millennium and Grant Parks downtown and Lincoln Park just to the north. And Museum Campus alone has 57 immaculate acres.

Dining That Goes Much Deeper than Pizza
Six Chicago restaurants earned the prestigious Five Diamond Award from the AAA for 2015—more than any other North American city. Home to 24 Michelin-star restaurants and over 40 James Beard Award medalists, Chicago's diverse neighborhoods serve up all kinds of cuisines. Let your taste buds be your guide. And let's not forget our staples. Dive in to some cheesy goodness at one of our famed deep-dish pizza joints or grab yourself a Chicago-style hot dog. Whatever you decide to bring with you, be sure an appetite is first on the list!

We Call It Magnificent for a Reason

Chicago is a shopper's paradise. Known for its Magnificent Mile, the awe-inspiring architecture definitely makes the name ring true. Retail shops, restaurants, hotels and galleries dot the tree-lined avenue. You'll also discover great finds on State Street. This great street offers a variety of shopping at every price point. 

For Entertainment, It's Your Kind of Town

With incredible venues ranging from intimate neighborhood clubs to historic music halls, Chicago is the prime tour stop. From classical to heavy metal, you'll find it here on any given night. From glitzy pre-Broadway debuts to more intimate local productions, we've got it all, including five Tony Award®-winning theater companies and the legendary comedy of The Second City.

Want to catch a game? Sports fans in heaven wish they'd died and gone to Chicago. The Cubs and White Sox, the Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Sky, Fire and more keep fans on the edge of their seats. Catch any game, and you'll see the passion for yourself.
