Hi there! For many people, myself included, January is a time when we really start feeling the winter blues. The holiday season has come and gone, and there really isn’t much to look forward to for the last few months of winter.
But just because the days are shorter and the nights colder doesn’t mean you have to spend all your time at home. There are plenty of things to do in Chicago during January, ChicagoTraveler.com has an ever expanding list to suit anyone’s tastes and today I’m bringing you my top 3 favorite activities for beating the winter blues and, of course, how to be stylishly prepared for theÂ occasion.
It’s cold and there’s snow on the ground, but instead of hiding from it, why not embrace it? Ice skating in the city stays strong through March and the rink at Millennium Park is one of Chicago’s top attractions during the winter. Now that the holidays are done it’s sure to be less crowded, so grab a hot date or some gal pals and show off your best ‘Blades of Glory’ inspired moves.

Yet another popular attraction of Chicago is it’s plethora of museums. From The Art Institute, to The Field Museum, to The SheddÂ AquariumÂ there is a museum for every interest. I’m personally a big fan of the Museum of Science & Industry, as I’m a big nerd at heart and I love how most of the exhibits are interactive. Be sure to head over and check out their Charlie Brown and The Great Exhibit before it leaves town in February, I hear it’s a can’t miss!
What activities do you do to beat the winter blues in your hometown?
