This weekend downtown Chicago welcomes the 58th annual Chicago Air and Water Show. Onlookers will be able to take in amazing sights and sounds this Saturday and Sunday along the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. The show features many popular returning acts like the Blue Angels, F-35 Heritage Flight, U.S. Air Force Thunderbird's and more. Every year this end of summer spectacle attracts huge crowds to popular viewing areas like North Avenue Beach. AmeriCash Loans has come up with a few tips to help you avoid the crowds en route to finding the perfect spot to watch the action unfold.

Getting to the Show
With thousands of people flocking to downtown Chicago you should anticipate some heavy traffic. The best way to avoid traffic is to take public transportation. Both Metra and the CTA will be adding extra service in order to combat the large number of people attending the show. Metra will be offering round trip passes for only $8, while children 11 and under ride for free. Another great option to consider is the Divvy bike rental service. Divvy will be operating a valet service at both North Ave beach and Navy Pier. If you still decide to drive to the show the underground Millennium Garages is charging $35 for a full day of parking. 

Finding the Perfect Spot
If one thing is for certain it’s the fact that North Avenue beach will be crowded. While North Avenue offers great views, there are many other great spots to watch the action from. Oak Street beach, Fullerton beach and Ohio Street beach offer great views of the show with less of a crowd. If sand and beaches is not your thing, another great option is to take in the show at Navy Pier. A special Air and Water Show watch event is taking place on the southern side of the pier. The event will offer all-day entertainment that the whole family will enjoy. Navy Pier will also be offering special lake cruises if you’re looking for the best possible views. An alternative viewing option is one of the 8 lake front restaurants offering viewing parties with great food and no crowds.

Regardless of how you choose to take in the amazing Chicago Air and Water Show you are sure to be amazed by the action. If you are in need of little extra cash this weekend to make your Chicago Air and Water Show experience one to remember, AmeriCash Loans can help. Apply today to get the cash you need!
