Winter Events for 465 North Park Residents

January 31, 2023

Winter in Chicago can be a magical time of year, with plenty of events and activities to enjoy despite the colder weather. If you’re looking for something to do, here are a few suggestions to get you started.

Take a walk on the Lakefront Trail, an 18-mile path that hugs the shores of Lake Michigan. The trail offers beautiful views of the lake and city skyline, making it a popular destination for walkers and runners year-round. However, in the winter, the trail can get quite chilly, so make sure to dress warmly and wear appropriate footwear to stay comfortable.

Ice skating is another popular winter activity in Chicago. The city has several outdoor ice rinks that are open during the winter, including the iconic rink at Millennium Park. If you’re looking for a more unique skating experience, check out the rink at Maggie Daley Park, which has a unique "ribbon" design.

If you’re looking for an indoor activity, check out the Chicago Botanic Garden. The garden is beautiful all year round, but in the winter it’s especially lovely. Take a walk through the gardens to see the winter landscapes, and check the schedule for any special events or exhibits that may be taking place.

Chicago also has a vibrant theatre scene, with many venues offering performances all year round. Check out the schedule at venues such as the Goodman Theatre, The Steppenwolf Theatre, and the Broadway Playhouse for a night of entertainment.

Finally, Willis Tower Skydeck, Lincoln Park Zoo, and Art Institute of Chicago are also great options for indoor activities during the winter. So, whether you’re looking to get active outdoors or enjoy some indoor activities, Chicago has plenty to offer in the winter.
