The Shedd Aquarium is one of Chicago’s largest tourist attractions.  It has over 1500 species and  stunning architecture that is sure to amaze patrons of all ages.

The Magnificent Mile is a shoppers dream!  Your guests don’t have to miss out on the glitz and glam of pageantry~ one trip to the Magnificent Mile and you won’t be the only one with a wardrobe to die for during pageant week!

Gino’s East: Just because you are on a diet, doesn’t mean your guests are!  Gino’s East serves up some  of the best, Chicago style deep dish pizza.  Chicago is known for its cuisine, be sure your guests experience the best that the city has to offer.

Wrigley Field: Known for its ivy covered walls and distinctive marquee, Wrigley Field is sure to be a hit with your guests. 

These are just a few suggestions.  Chicago is a beautiful city with so much to offer. Your friends and family may not be able to tag along on your appearances and events, but that doesn’t mean they should have any less fun. After exploring Chicago, you’ll be surprised at what their “pageant week” photos reveal!
