Things to do for Christmas in Chicago

The Chicago winter may be especially cold, characterized by snow and slush, but this does not stop the windy city from fully taking part in the festivities of winter. Despite the weather, Christmas in Chicago comes early, with Christmas-themed events and activities scheduled from mid-November, extending well past the 25th of December. Our Chicago limo specialists have therefore decided to come up with a list of exciting events activities in Chicago to help keep you warm during this festive season.

But before we proceed to our list, we would like to recommend employing the services of our Chicago car service for all your transportation needs this holiday season. This is a season for family and a time to relax and unwind with those you love. However, due to the influx of both human and vehicle traffic akin to this season, you may find yourself spending a great deal of time navigating traffic in treacherous weather conditions and struggling to find parking spaces at every location you stop by.

Let our professionally trained and dedicated chauffeurs take the wheel this season and take the time to simply focus on enjoying a luxurious, hassle-free ride to various locations as you revel in our luxury amenities and fully focus your energy on spending quality time with your loved ones. Happy Holidays!!

The following is a short list of some exciting events and activities you can enjoy in the Windy City this season.

Drink with the Animals

Head over to the Lincoln Park Zoo located along North Clark Street any time between the 23rd of November and the 6th of December. This Christmas tradition lived on for yet another year; here you will find mesmerizing displays of twinkling Christmas lights, kids’ games, live ice carving, and drinks including beer and spiced wine. The event is absolutely free but prices may vary for special events, for example the craft beer festival scheduled for the 6th of December. So log onto their website and find out what special events may interest you.

Ice Skating at Millennium Park

Remember that scene that always pops up in just about every Christmas film; where the characters are ice skating and you can see the city lights illuminating the sky in the background? Well, it actually exists, and you have the opportunity to live that magical moment at Millennium Park. You don’t even have to bring your own ice skates, just head on down to the park any time throughout the duration of the holiday season and rent a pair for only $10.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Sweater

This comedy show is an ongoing event that has been running every day since the 13th of November and will only come to a close on the 30th of December. The comedy show is hosted at the Up Comedy Club along North Avenue. This unorthodox, holiday comedy is a satire that demonstrates the absurdity of the holiday season, but it is still a good laugh suitable for the entire family. Ticket prices range between $40 and $60.
