No holiday bucket list is complete without a lap or two around the best ice skating rinks in Chicago. Lucky for us, most of the top Chicago Christmas events have built-in skating features, so you can lace up at Millennium Park, Winterland at Gallagher Way and Navy Pier's Winter WonderFest. No skates? No problem—many of the rinks on this list offer low-cost rentals for littles ones and adults. Once you're done dancing on the ice, drive around in search of dazzling Christmas lights in Chicago or warm up at one of the city's best bars with a fireplace.
Don't forget: Rink hours may vary based on weather conditions. We suggest calling ahead before lacing up your skates.
