When it’s Christmas here in Illinois, some time spent in the Chicago Loop is an absolute must. I’ve written in the past about our family tradition of visiting Santa at Macy’s on State Street (in fact, this year’s visit is tomorrow), and then there’s the always-festive Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza, which we’ve already visited once this season. No matter what you’re into, there’s something for the whole family, and the Chicago Loop Alliance has put together a definitive guide to all the Holiday Deals & Events this season. Better yet, they’ve even curated some daily itineraries of events, along with the full rundown on all that’s family-friendly, and in some cases – free.

Select Holiday deals available at Include:

  • 20% off M-F performances Porgy and Bess at Lyric Opera of Chicago
  • Discounted $7 admission at Gene Siskel Film Center
  • 10% off tickets to The Joffrey Ballet’s Nutcracker
  • 10% Visitor Savings Pass at Macy’s
  • Free wrapping at The Atrium Holiday Wrapping Booth

And dozens more!
