Fall has been fairly mild, but that shouldn’t stop you from embracing cold-weather activities. No, we’re not advocating skiing down Cricket Hill in Uptown, but if you want to don a pair of skates and hit the ice, there are plenty of places to do that in the city. No matter if you want to brave crowds at Lincoln Park Zoo and Maggie Daley Park or take things a little more local in one of the neighborhoods, you have plenty of options all over Chicago – outdoor and indoor.
