Our Windy City shopping alternatives for after
Turkey Day.
Don't spend the day after Thanksgiving fighting for steep
discounts on merchandise; instead check out these things to do in Chicago that
deserve much more hype.
1.
Ice Skating and Hot Chocolate View Michigan Avenue from the ice with a
public skating session on Millennium Park's ice rink.
Afterwards, step into
the Park Grill next door and indulge in some rich hot cocoa topped with
homemade marshmallows.
2.
Get in the Spirit at Christkindlmarket Get a peek inside Chicago's
German heritage at Christkindlmarket, the annual Christmas market held in
Daley Plaza.
While you're browsing, pause for some sauerkraut soup and
chocolate-covered fruit kabobs— both are local favorites.
3.
View the Downtown Window Display Always free and one of the
most-beloved parts of the Chicago holiday season, the window displays at
Macy's are opulent, automated, and a twinkling reminder of the season's joy.
4.
iFly Indoor Skydiving Take a cab a little out of the city to Rosemont,
where you can don a skydiving suit and fly in an indoor wind tunnel.
iFly
brings the skydiving dream to the masses—even on cold winter days when the
real thing isn't an option.
5.
Wreathing of the Lions Have kids? Take them to see the annual
Wreathing of the Lions, when the statues that sit outside the Art Institute
get outfitted in their holiday greenery.
Afterwards, head into the museum to
make wreaths of your own.
6.
Devil in the White City Tour Fans of the book will love this tour put
on by Weird Chicago that takes guests to all the major remaining sites of
H.H.
Holmes' reign of terror during the 1893 Columbian Exposition.
7.
Play a Game of WhirlyBall This is a unique chance to participate in
Chicago's favorite everyman sport: WhirlyBall.
Score points for your team with
a handheld scoop and whiffle ball while traversing the field from the comfort
of a rickety bumper car.
