Chicago Christmas Lights and Christkindlmarket
Community Education Travel -
There’s no time like Christmas in Chicago! Join us as we celebrate the season. After a late morning departure we’re off to the colorful Christkindlmarket, an enchanting and inviting holiday village at Daley Plaza. Shop for holiday crafts at the most authentic traditional holiday market of its kind outside of Europe or walk over to see the traditional holiday windows at Macy’s on State St. On North Michigan Avenue, enjoy lunch at the Grand Lux Cafe, where you’ll dine on internationally-inspired cuisine in an elegant and relaxed setting which is reminiscent of Italian Trattorias, French Bistros and the cafes of Vienna! As the sun goes down we visit Lincoln Park Zoo for their annual Zoo Lights* celebration. See Lincoln Park Zoo as it becomes a twinkling winter wonderland with their Enchanted Forest and Light Maze. Later we’ll experience the sparkling Chicago Christmas Lights as our deluxe motorcoach drives along the Magnificent Mile, through the Chicago Loop and Millennium Park to see Chicago’s official Christmas Tree and the glistening ice skating rink. A great way to celebrate the Holidays! *Subject to schedule released in October. A substitution would be made if necessary.
