When the weather outside is frightful, there's nothing like some holiday spirit and seasonal treats to warm you up from the inside out. Follow a guide through Chicago's winter wonderland, sampling local sweets and Christmassy goodies as you marvel at the city's sparkling lights and festive sights.
The Windy City may be known for its deep dish pizzas and Chicago-style hot dogs, but during the holidays, there's a whole new slew of decadent treats to try. Bundle up and meet your guide for a sweets-driven expedition through the snowy cityscape, warming up over toasty snacks in the glow of Christmas lights along State Street. And not to worry—if it's really chilly, you can head to the heated, underground Pedway to trek between destinations in comfort.
Pass by Millennium Park's skating rink, where locals and visitors alike glide across the ice with Chicago's famed skyscrapers as a backdrop, and then check out the decor in the iconic Walnut Room at Marshall Field's. Bite into a nutty, glazed brownie at the Palmer House—this all-American chocolate confection was invented at the historic hotel.
After admiring the twinkling Christmas tree at Daley Plaza, pull up a stool for a seasonal brew overlooking the Chicago River, then make your way to Christkindlmarket. Chicago's largest open-air Christmas festival, this market is full of jovial shops and stands peddling ornaments and plenty of German goodies—from pretzels, schnitzel, and crêpes to hot, spiced mugs of mulled glühwein.
