In Chicago, we don’t let snow and cold keep us down. We strap on our big boy long johns and snow pants and power through until spring.
From outdoor winter festivals to cross-country skiing, there’s plenty to do this time of year. Most forest preserves and park districts offer outlets for every kind of winter activity you can imagine.
So cash that check Grandma gave you for Christmas and get ready to have winter fun.
