Ice Skating in Chicago: Lace up at the Lincoln Park ZooGo Ice Skating at the Lincoln Park Zoo
Now through March 1, 2015
Looking for ways to stay warm but still get some fresh air during the coldest winter months? Spend an afternoon at the Lincoln Park Zoo ice skating rink, open now through March 1st at the Farm-in-the-Zoo. If you're visiting from out of town, you'll probably want to rent your skates at the Farmhouse (for $5) instead of bringing your own pair. Lace up, and show off your skills - or simply try to stay standing, whatever your level of expertise may be. When you're ready for a rest break, you can head into the Main Barn to warm up and enjoy refreshments.
All ages are welcome with $5 admission, an affordable activity for kid-friendly fun or a romantic afternoon spent hand-in-hand. Since the hours vary, you can check out the full schedule at http://www.lpzoo.org/events/calendar/ice-skating-lincoln-park-zoo. The ice skating rink is located at the South End of the zoo. It's the perfect way to end your visit after exploring the eclectic wildlife exhibits, each in a different building. Stroll the heated animal houses to discover all the diverse habitats and creatures that call Lincoln Park home. Be sure to stop by to welcome the new group of Macaques, more commonly known as snow monkeys, the perfect mascots for these chilly months.
And after your visit with the lions, tigers, and bears, you'll have the chance to hit the ice skating rink. As an activity that gets you moving, this is a great chance to burn some extra calories to indulge in Chicago's world-class dining scene guilt-free. Stay at Days Inn Chicago to plan your exciting escape to the Windy City this winter.
