1995 Midwest Regional Conference

Spice and Family Activities

Chicago is a great place to visit, with lots of things to do in and around the city. Why not bring your family along for the weekend? There are lots of things to keep them entertained on Saturday, and you can join them Sunday afternoon, before heading back home. You'll find parkland and beaches along miles of the lakefront, world class museums, as well as a wide variety of entertainment and dining experiences.

In the Oak Brook area, you'll find a variety of attractions, ranging from the Morton Arboretum to the first-rate Oak Brook Shopping Center.

Subway Navigator for Chicago (metro.jussieu.fr:10001/bin/statmap/english/usa/chicago)
Links to the Worldwide Subway Navigator (metro.jussieu.fr:10001/bin/cities/english) map for Chicago, which allows you to plan trips around the city using the CTA subway and "El" system.

The Regional conference is being held just West of the city, conveniently located near the Eisenhower Expressway (Interstate 290, which goes directly East into the city) and the Tristate Tollway (Interstate 294, essentially a "beltway" going North and South around much of the city).

Chicago is warm in August, often with a cooling breeze from the lake. T-shirt and shorts weather; don't forget to bring a comfortable pair of shoes.

Please excuse us, since Spice has become an APCUG in joke as the plural of Spouse.
