If you appreciate the artful wonders of tattooing as much as we do, find yourself at Tattoo at the Field Museum which illustrates the history and "meaning" behind the ink. They even have a tattoo shop and demo's. We can hardly wait to get there.

Beginning Nov 18 through March, the BlackHawks won't be the only ones ice skating around these parts! The Millennium Park Ice Skating rink offers the most breathtaking views of the city skyline (and the chance to show off your mad skills). If "alpine" skating is more your speed, get to the Maggie Daley Skating Ribbon and enjoy a whole different experience on ice - Either way, they are two beautiful locations in this gorgeous city.

The popular annual Christkindl Market returns for a week of holiday festivities bringing its old world goods and traditions for the whole family to enjoy. Tip: Weekdays and evenings are generally easier to manage in these crowds.

If the razzle dazzle of holiday lights is your thing, you won't want to miss Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo. A big part of the holiday tradition in Chicago, this spectacular event runs through December and features gorgeous lights, music, food, and drinks for "kids" of all ages . . .
