Chicago Landmarks

Chicago is an extremelly vibrant and diverse city which has a lot to offer for every visitor - simply, to paraphrase Frank Sinatra's song, "...your kind of town...". It is a metropolitan center with plenty of architectural attractions, museums, world-renowned shopping and dining, music and all other kinds of entertainment, plus much more.

The venue of this year's ACM SIGMOD/PODS conference is located within walking distance - less than 1 mile - from various attractions:

Within minutes from the Renaissance hotel, you can enjoy a variety of restaurants:

Of course, you can always enjoy a nice stroll and "shop-till-you-drop" on the Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile .

Within a short-ride from the hotel, you can enjoy the exhibitions in the Chicago's Museum Campus: Field Museum , Shedd Aquarium and the Adler Planetarium .

A comprehensive up-to-date information about many landmarks, events and tours in Chicago can always be obtained at

We are looking forward to seeing you at SIGMOD/PODS!
