It’s cold, snowy, and as always, windy… and it’s probably going be that way for a while. So… have some fun with it!

The South Loop not only has two great sledding hills – the official one by Solider Field and the unofficial one at the General John Logan Monument – but is also home to the Chicago Park District’s Polar Adventure Days at Northerly Island.
