My sister lives in Chicago and invites me to all sorts of events happening in the city.  One of her favorites is the Winterland at Gallagher Way.

From ice skating, to Holiday movie nights, to Wintertube Ice Slides, there is so much to do for your entire family!  I'll be going this weekend, so I'll let you know if it's worth the drive.

This is the perfect place to enjoy a whimsical date night!  You can check available timeslots for skating here.


How many of you can say you've ridden a train this cool?  None of us.


Tons of handmade goods, artisan goods, and desserts will be available for purchase.  Would be the perfect time to get those last minute gifts!


If you've been looking for that chance to get a picture taken with Santa, now's the time!  He'll make appearances during the duration of the Winterland event, so don't miss your chance.

To find the calendar for when Winterland is open at Gallagher Way, check here.  They're located at 3637 N Clark St, Chicago.  It'll be a weekend of fun, no doubt!  What's even better?

Admission to Gallagher Way activities is free and requires no tickets to access the holiday fun. - Gallagher Way
