It’s already almost the New Year in Chicago, and not being able to gather like we have in the past isn’t stopping people from being festive! Ring in the New Year in Chicago with one of these 4 activities that will bring you some holiday cheer with your loved ones. Find a moment to relax during this busy time of the year and enjoy some of the best things to do in Chicago for new years in the next two weeks.
1.Visit Frosty’s Christmas pop-up Hotel
Get in the holiday cheer by booking a room at Frosty’s Christmas pop-up hotel. When you are a guest of Frosty’s Hotel you receive access to Frosty’s one-of-a-kind photo opps and Hotel rooms sprinkled with Holiday Cheer from Frosty’s creative team. How fun!

2. Jack Frost Winter Village
Jack’s Winter Walk & Christmas Tree Farm Pop-Up is located on over 2 acres of land in the historic Goose Island.

3.Socially distant happy hour
You might not have the chance to ring in the New Year with all the people that you love, but what a better way to connect than through zoom! Play a game, catch up with friends, and ring in the New Year socially distant style.
4. Drive through light show
At Northbrook Court located less than 25 miles north of downtown Chicago, you can go and experience a holiday drive through light show! With over a million LED lights to look at, this is a perfect way to bring in the New Year while staying warm and jolly! To buy tickets, visit https://shinelightshow.com/
