Don't let the cold keep you from doing ticking off our list of the best things to do this winter in Chicago.

We'll admit that sometimes Chicago winter is best enjoyed via pseudo-hibernation: hunkering down indoors, basking in the glow of a full-spectrum lamp, ordering Chicago pizza, streaming movies on Netflix. This season, make a resolution to get out and about. Catch one of the many concerts in Chicago—Fleetwood Mac, Sleater-Kinney and Justin Timberlake are just a few of the artists coming to town. Go downhill skiing or snowboarding without leaving the Midwest. Cozy up by a fireplace (in a Chicago restaurant or bar—your apartment doesn't count), or get a massage at one of the city's best spas. What we're saying is: There are a lot of things to do in Chicago this winter, so get out there.
