1) Ice Skating at Millennium Park
This is your last chance to try out Millennium Park’s outdoor ice skating rinks, which both close on March 10. The McCormick Tribune Rink is a tradition oval shape perfect for beginners. The Ribbon, located at Maggie Daily Park, is a long circular path with level, uphill, and downhill skating for a slightly more experienced skater although beginners are welcome to try. Skates may be rented for $15 a pair, but bring your own, and it’s completely free of charge.
2) Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel hits the big screen this weekend. See how Marvel Comics newest heroine will punch holes in the sky in the final Marvel film before Endgame is released.
3) Window Shop Macy’s Department Store
Located at 111 N State St in the heart of downtown Chicago, this thirteen-story tall store will provide hours of entertainment. No matter what you are looking for, it’s there.
4) Go to Chicago and take the train
If you are unfamiliar with Chicago, try taking the L train through the heart of Chicago. Sitting in a train car, you can see many historical buildings, experience what it’s like to be a Chicagoan, and get where you need to go. Go to https://www.transitchicago.com/ for information regarding train/bus routes, arrival times, and fare rates.
5) Visit the Lake
Check out the lovely Lake Michigan in the colder weather. The beach will look completely different on a cold day than on a warm one. The choppy waves and deep blue color is perfect for getting great photos.
