The welcoming sights of the winter season serve as the best incentive to enjoy the tradition of ice skating in Chicago. What better way to keep warm under the gelid temperatures than swiveling around an ice rink while sharing laughs and building memories.

The McCormick Tribune Ice Rink in Millennium Park is open to the public until March 9th. The admission is free and skates are available for a rental fee.
