The annual Chicago Air & Water Show makes its triumphant return to North Avenue Beach on August 19th & 20th for another weekend of aerial magic and water-front stunts.
In preparation for the big event, be sure you have your viewing spot settled. The beach might seem like the most rational place to watch the show, but it can get overwhelmingly crowded on the weekend.
Once summer comes around, nothing beats having a lakefront paradise to escape to. Luckily for Chicagoans, we have the beautiful shores of Harbor Country just over an hour away.

They also happen to all be featured on the upcoming @properties Home for the Summer tour taking place August 5th. So if you see something you like be sure to come visit!
