Beachfront Dining For The Air & Water ShowBring a cooler with soggy PB&J sandwiches to the beach so you can watch The Air & Water Show if you want, but if I were you, I'd try to do something a bit more tasty. Along the lake there are many great restaurants that offer not only a great view of the Thunderbirds that will be flying overhead, but great food too. Some even offer specials for The Air & Water Show, which sure is swell of them! So why not take them up on one of their offers?
