What would be the perfect weather for my wife and two kids and me to make the trip to Chicago. I'm guessing my wife is thinking of Navy Pier and go shoping. Also where in Michigan City is the best place to put in at? Is the boat ramp there at the beach open? I know during the Boat show they have it closed.

Thanks for any advice.
Go to Sprague Marina on Michigan Blvd. It is on the opposite side of the river from Blue Chip Casino. Magic Medicine and I launch there all of the time. He has a 32' Sunsation and I have a 28' cat. About a 10 minute idle and you are out on the big lake.

Thanks for all the info guys but since my wife saw there isn't any place really to dock in Chicago plans might change. It will be later in the day on Saturday before we get up there so I don't think we could do the fun run. I'd would like to do a fun run or even a poker run sometime. I know I'd probable be the last person to finish but I might have the biggest smile on my face.
