While our visit to Chicago for Christmas wrapped up as one of the coldest ever, it was fantastic. The lights and scenes of the city made being bundled up against the cold worthwhile.
A quick drive over to Burnham Park gave a seasonal perspective of the classic skyline view, minus the boats, but with frozen water instead.
The Tribune Tower’s Nathan Hale statue was decked out for the season.
A different view – the Willis (aka Sears) Tower looking north.
With the extreme cold Lake Michigan iced over in the just few days we were there.
Meanwhile up at Wrigley Field they had set up a Christmas Market, complete with an ice rink.
Our final evening was spent walking along the (now frozen as well) Chicago River.
And a walk along the Magnificent Mile.
