January 28, 2012 5:31:24 AM PST
Whether you like adventure, romance, the tropics, or winter travel, you're bound to find information at the Chicago Travel and Adventure Show.

The show is at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont this weekend, and ABC7 is a sponsor. It will feature a long list of interesting speakers, including the Travel Channel's Samanatha Brown, Windy City Live's Mark DeCarlo, and author Patricia Schultz, who wrote the quintessential world travel guide, "1,000 Places To See Before You Die." Schultz just published a revised version, and she joined us in our ABC7 studio to give expert travel advice and to suggest a few destinations that are easily reached from Chicago.


    Schultz's Suggestions:
  • The Boundary Waters in Minnesota, p. 816
  • Nashville, TN, p. 875
  • Southwest South Dakota, the Badlands, the Black Hills and Mt Rushmore, p. 869
  • Exotic and international: Buenos Aires, tango clubs, steak houses, Evita!, p. 980
