10 Free Things to Do in Chicago This November

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 10:00 AM by Maddy Osman

With so many free things to do this month, there's a lot to be grateful for this November! As the holiday season officially begins, there's a long list of things that will become full: tummies, parks, and ice skating rinks are among them, but nothing is more full than Chicago's social calendar! 

Millennium Park Ice Skating Rink

Skating figure eights is always fun, and Chicago sets the skating stage by offering a wide selection of wonderful outdoor skating rinks. From a sky high rink to a lazy river-like ribbon of ice, there's an ice skating rink to fit your every whim. Grab your mittens, scarf, sweetheart and a thermos of hot cocoa and enjoy fun night of ice skating.

The Chicago Blackhawks (Stanley Cup Champs!) sponsor Chicago’s public ice rinks programs, and just like the team, the offerings are bar none. Here are my favorite ways to skate away the remainder of the winter.
