The holiday season is here! Living in Chicago can be a tough time during the cold winter but that doesn’t mean you can’t go out and enjoy some great activities in the city. With Chicago being the third-largest metropolitan city, it has a ton of fun things to do but the Zoo at night is something you can’t miss. Head to the Lincoln Park Zoo and take a stroll through the park and enjoy the scenery of more than 2 million lights streamed throughout the park.
Here you will be able to see a light display that is queued up to music and a 600 foot-foot-long tunnel that is a perfect place to take photos for your Instagram. The next thing that is a must-visit would be the Christkindlemarket that, here you will be amazed by anything and everything Christmas. This free admission activity will allow you to visit some great local vendors that sell perfect gifts like glass ornaments, hand-knitted apparel, and much more. Be to grab a hot chocolate and a warm pretzel while you are looking around. If you can’t get downtown to the main location, they also offer a miniature version in Wrigleyville which is about 15 minutes north of the city.
Last but not least check out the ice-skating rink at Millennium Park. This rink is open until March 6 and is a perfect place to bring the entire family. Once again this is a free activity, but you must make an online reservation. If you are up for a little bit more of a challenge head around the corner to Maggie Daley Park and ice skate through the unique skating ribbon. This allows you to whistle through curves and really carve out some ice while skating. Be sure to check out at least one if not all of these to get you in the holiday spirit!
