Chicago Navy Pier Christmas 2012

Christmas in Chicago 2012
Visiting Chicago during the holiday season is sure to be a memorable experience. There is so much to do and see in the windy city. At Navy Pier you will find a spectacular 'Winter Wonderland' complete with rides, games and even ice skating. Plan on seeing over-the-top holiday decorations such as the massive red tree in the background of this picture. I'm not sure of the height, but I would guess it was about 50 ft. tall! There was a small kiddy train that rode around the tree with some very happy little riders! There is a fee for rides and activities but simply walking around and enjoying all the gorgeous decor is absolutely FREE.
Stained Glass Exhibit at Navy Pier (year-round)
Once you've had your fill of the Winter Wonderland, head towards the end of the building to see the display of stained glass windows. It is a huge, permanant collection of some of the most beautiful stained glass you will ever see. You will find traditional religious designs as well as modern, artistic works of art. Colors, Craftsmanship and Creativity all vie for your attention during a leisurely stroll through this FREE exhibit.
