Navy Pier's Winter WonderFest

Chicago is a beautiful place to be around the holidays. Christkindl Market in Daley Plaza. Shop windows to explore on the Magnificent Mile. The tree lit up at Millennium Park and the snow-capped Bean. But...if you want to enjoy lights and trees and holiday merriment while staying warm, Navy Pier is the place to be for the Fifth Third Bank Winter WonderFest running through January 8 (closed on Christmas Day.)

I went to check it out with two of my boys recently and we pulled into the east parking garage, walked in to the Pier, went up the escalator and never had to feel one cold burst of wind. That's my kind of holiday fun.

If you're breathing a sigh of relief now that Christmas is done, but wondering what to do with the kids while they're home for the next week-and-a-half, the Winter WonderFest is a perfect way to spend a day. With an indoor ice skating rink, climbing wall, bounce houses and slides and lots of rides (including a carousel and Ferris Wheel), there's something for everyone. 170,000 square feet of fun for everyone to be exact.
