Overview of Millennium Park Ice Skating:
Ice skating at Chicago's Millennium Park
is one of Chicago's most popular winter activities with the rink's skyscraper views, festive music, and charm - the Millennium Park Ice Rink is outside along Michigan Avenue. The 2012/2013 Millennium Park Ice Skating season will run through March, weather permitting.
Some things to keep in mind when planning your trip to the Millennium Park Ice Rink, include:
-The rink can get really crowded resulting in long lines for renting skates, especially on weekends and holidays.
-The ice is Zamboni'd regularly to keep it smooth, so expect breaks when you have to get off the ice.
-There are benches to sit on that run along the rink for spectators.
-If you get cold and and want to warm up with some hot chocolate, check out the Park Grill restaurant at Millennium Park.
