I called DuSable marina next door and they said we could tie up to their wall. We gladly moved to the wall and we were able to watch the air show from our boat.
The museum had enough exhibits to keep you occupied for an entire day but we only did a few things there that interested us. We went "into" a coal mine and viewed a display of trains. In the train display was a scale model of the train system from Chicago to Seattle. This display was in a very large room.
Bill and Birute were able to get tickets for the four of us to see Wicked, the broadway musical about the witches in the Wizard Of Oz. It was an entertaining show and well done.
A guy stopped by to replace a tube in his tire so I helped him get the tire back on the wheel. He was a local so he was just trying to finish and said he wasn't concerned about losing his "sponsors".
