Sights to Visit in Chicago During the Holidays

Posted on November 26, 2019

Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon

Get ready Chicagoans! It’s about time everyone brought out their ice skates! This holiday season, grab your loved ones and get ready to break their fall. The Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon is open Monday through Thursday from 12 pm to 8 pm and Friday through Sunday from 10 am to 10 pm; holiday hours vary! Luckily, admission is free. Tickets are $13 on Monday through Thursday, and $15 on Friday through Sunday.

Zoo Lights

Personally, my favorite part about the holidays are the lights. Head over to Lincoln Park Zoo during this winter vacation and experience the beautiful lights they have for free! Zoo Lights begins this holiday season until early January.

Chicago’s Thanksgiving Parade

Starting at 8 am, the Chicago Thanksgiving parade will begin on State Street downtown. Ranging from various giant floats, marching bands, and local high schools, this event is a great way to get in the holiday spirit.

Visit the Christmas Tree in Millennium Park

If you missed the Millennium Park Christmas tree lighting, that’s okay! As a fellow Christmas lover, I highly suggest grabbing a group of friends and traveling to Millennium Park. I definitely suggest taking and sharing a few pictures in front of the giant Christmas tree!

The World’s Largest Starbucks

The world’s largest Starbucks opened up on November 15th, 2019! If you’re are coffee lover, specifically a Starbucks lover, grab a friend and head to the magnificent mile! The cafe is 4 stories tall with large glass windows. So Cool!
