01-20-08_boat_show.jpgIf you’re looking for a little summertime fantasy amidst this arctic freeze we’re having, then head on over to McCormick Place for the 78th Annual Chicago Boat, RV and Outdoor Show, which is in its final day. New for this year is the Accessory Center, which highlights all the latest we need to bling our boats, from safety equipment to the latest in outdoor entertaining. You can also “test drive” a pair of Crocs, borrowing a pair while you’re at the show.

The show highlights all the latest in boating, from first-time starter boats and pontoons, to high-end sea-going yachts. Same is true for the RVs. Whether you’re a veteran boater or just beginning to embrace the boat-people lifestyle, you’ll find the show a terrific diversion from the sub-zero temperatures we’re experiencing.
