What to Do in Chicago In the Winter

Luckily, there are plenty of winter activities in Chicago to keep you entertained. Here are just a few of them:

Ride The Centennial Wheel At Navy Pier - Did you know these seats are heated? Take in the sites of Chicagoland from a new vantage point with a cup of cocoa and wintertime cheer.

Dine in an Igloo - The upscale Godfrey Hotel offers an igloo dining experience so you can take in a starry winter night without sitting out in the cold. 

Eat Your Way Through Town - Winter is the perfect time to find your favorite deep dish place or try out new cuisine. The 17th annual Chicago Restaurant Week runs January 19th-February 4th, 2024. 

Go Ice Skating - One of the best ways to beat the winter blues is to find a winter sport. Grab your skates and go ice skating at one of the many skating rinks in town, including the Millennium Park Ice Rink or the Wrigley Square Ice Rink. 

Take the Plunge - The Chicago Polar Plunge is set for January 27, 2024, at Oak Street Beach. This is a great way to support an important cause and experience a once-in-a-lifetime chill! Learn more here. 

See Live Theater - Chicago is known for its active theater scene. See a show at Second City, the Goodman, or LookingglassChicago Theater Week, where theaters across the city offer $15-30 tickets, runs February 8-18, 2024.
