Remember Chicago’s Skate on State? Well, about nine years ago, the rink was moved to a bigger location at Millennium Park. And each year, the rink opens in mid-November.


The rink is open every day from November 18 to March 14 (weather permitting, of course). You can even lace up those skates on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day! While times vary, the rink generally opens at noon Monday through Friday and at 10 a.m. on weekends. Skating is FREE, but there is a $10 fee to rent skates.

The McCormick Tribune Ice Rink is located at 55 N. Michigan Avenue. For more information, visit this website or call 312-742-5222.
