Ice Skating at Millennium Park in Chicago, Illinois
Chicago can be a rough place to be in winter – below-freezing temperatures, howling winds, and driving snow can force all but the hardiest souls inside for the season. But there is one reason to venture outdoors: free ice skating at Millennium Park. From November to March a rink is set up in the park were would-be Dorothy Hamills can practice their moves. Strap on your skates (rentals are available for $10) and a few triple salchows later, you may hardly even notice the cold.
