What to do in Cold Weather

Would like to spend a few days in Chicago but the weather high will be 33. Normally we would walk ALL over, from Nordstrom/Saks area all the way to Riggly Field. What is there for adults to do indoors besides museums.

You can walk all over any day of the year. You just have to dress correctly. If you dont want to walk, you can take a bus, the "L"/subway or taxi from place to place... including Wrigley Field. But why do you want to go to Wrigley in the winter? Check out what is going on in theatre, ice skate in Millenium Park, visit Lincoln Park Conservatory and, later, Zoolights in Lincoln Park Zoo next door. Michigan Ave is shoulder-to-shoulder people and it will be 50 degrees this weekend.

By the way, I'm wondering ... Isn't the average temp in Kansas City in December 30.8 degrees and 25 degrees in January?

Riggly. LOL. What about sitting in front of a fireplace having a glass of wine?

But try our museums! Our Art Institute is second to none! For a different kind of museum, visit Museum of Science and Industry....a very hands on sort of place. I can spend hours at the Aquarium. It would be a shame to visit Chicago and not visit 2 or 3 of our world famous museums!
