Unleash the Romantic in You at McCormick Tribune Ice Rink

Chicago will welcome winter in style on November 14, 2014 in Millennium Park when the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink opens to the public. Plans are for the rink to remain open through March 7, 2015, so there is plenty of time to plan your visit.

This is a free event and everyone is invited to attend! You can bring your own skates or rent a pair on site. If you aren’t brave enough to skate, it is a great place to people watch!

Every winter wonderland and most romantic Christmas movies feature a skating adventure. McCormick Tribune Ice Rink is the perfect place for your winter romance. Skating with your partner on Christmas Eve and Valentine’s Day will take your romance to new heights with a treasured memory like no other! You may even start a tradition that will go on for a lifetime!

Surrounded by the city’s skyscrapers, the park is a cozy getaway with a provided soundtrack for your skating adventure. It is great for a stop during holiday travel. If you are going to be flying through Chicago already, schedule a lengthy layover so that you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the winter wonderland at McCormick Tribune Ice Rink!

Skating and hot chocolate seem to go hand in hand. And in Chicago, that tradition holds true as there is a warm-up station/café (Park Grill) that serves delicious hot chocolate and other treats. Private dining is always an option if you want to share a romantic meal with the one you love! Park Grill provides a warm and unique setting for watching the skaters out on the ice.

McCormick Park is great for a first date or a date that will change your life forever! It could be the place that you propose or accept a proposal. If you are planning to pop the question, consider McCormick Tribune Ice Rink as the location to get down on one knee. It would give you both an amazing story to tell for a lifetime! If you place a video camera in the audience, you could have your own romantic movie to share with family and friends, or youtube!

McCormick Ice Rink is the place to bring your romantic skating fantasy to life. All it takes is a moment in time to make a dream become reality and a memory!
