Millennium Park ice skating season is ending
This snowstorm may suggest otherwise, but the Chicago winter season is soon coming to an end. Know why? Just about every outdoor ice skating rink has closed. Yes, this is disappointing for any cold-weather junkies out there, but don’t fret. If you’re looking to squeeze out that last ounce of winter magic, the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink at Millennium Park (Michigan Ave & Washington St) is open for a few more days.
You’ve got until Saturday, March 9 to get your skate on. If you’ve got ice skates, it’s free. If not, you can rent a pair for $10. Simple as that. Hours: Tues-Thurs 12pm-8pm, Fri 12pm-10pm, Sat 10am-9pm.
If you can’t make it to Millennium Park this week, you can opt to ice skate indoors at the John Hancock Observatory’s synthetic ice rink. The rink is located on the 94th floor of the Hancock Center, 1,000 feet above ground. Open until April 8. $6 admission, $1 to rent skates.
