ASCP Welcomes You to the Windy City

Chicago is an ideal location for this year’s Annual Meeting. As with any major city, you could spend a lifetime exploring all that this city situated on the rim of Lake Michigan has to offer. With world-renowned museums, theaters, and dining, you’ll find attractions around every corner. Here are just a few of the activities that you can enjoy:

Must-See Chicago

Between the observatories that provide breathtaking views of the city, to Millennium Park where art and music collide, you’ll find fun every day of the year. Explore the Navy Pier and its abundance of rides, museums, and dining. Not sure what to see? Take a tour. Entertaining guides will show you all the secrets of the city.

Shop Til’ You Drop

No trip to the Second City is complete without a visit to the Magnificent Mile replete with luxury brands and trendy fashions. This historical section of Michigan Avenue with retailers ranging from Louis Vuitton to Escada, nationally acclaimed restaurants, and live music will make your visit memorable.

From Haute Couture to Haute Cuisine

Deep dish pizza and Italian beef are Chicago staples, but the city is also home to 19 Michelin Star restaurants. Chicago can take your taste buds on a culinary world tour with its unparalleled dining scene.  When you’re packing your suitcase remember to bring your appetite.

A Feast for the Eyes and Ears

On any given day you can find everything from Broadway world premieres to edgy original plays in Chicago’s 200+ theaters. The Chicago Symphony is a musical force with more than 100 musicians, the Lyric Opera of Chicago will dazzle you with sound and sights, and Chicago’s celebrated dance companies, such as the Joffrey Ballet, will leave you amazed.
