There are so many things to do at Navy Pier. You can see a play at the Shakespeare theater, take a walk through the Botanical gardens, tour the Smith stained glass window museum. Or one of our favorites is to take our family to the Chicago Children's museum. Navy pier is a great place for the whole family.
We're showing you the Keys To A Chicago Christmas each week this month. We love our hometown and want to share some of our favorite traditions with you!
You can ice skate, people watch or grab a cup of hot chocolate and head over to the bean to take some fun pictures. Be sure to take a picture of yourself in the giant bean and go ice skating!
Happy December 1st!! I seriously cannot believe it’s December already. It doesn’t seem like the holidays yet because it hasn’t snowed yet. That’s just crazy to me. Chicago is known for our horrid weather and crazy snowstorms. Even though with the snow comes the bitter cold, I am a true Chicagoan and I love that weather and I can’t wait for it to come! And I’m not sure why but every December I think that all I will have to focus on is Christmas shopping and baking the whole month (and gaining a billion pounds, obviously). But I’ve found out in my life that December is always unpredictable and always the busiest month out of the year for me. This year is no exception. Something new and amazing is happening this December and I wanted to tell you about it cause I’m just so excited! If you follow my sisters and I on twitter or on facebook you may have seen us post little things about a Christmas benefit that we are doing for our city.
