Experience the magic of the holidays with Chicago’s most spectacular light displays at the city’s most popular destinations!
The Holiday Lights Tour starts at the John Hancock Center’s spectacular tree at the top of The Magnificent Mile. Over the next 2 1/2 hours, festive trolleys make two stops to let you hop off and explore the magic of Chicago’s lights and sights.
First, you’ll head over to the Gold Coast where Sprinkles treats you to a handcrafted holiday cupcake. From there, you'll be whisked down State Street and through the Loop to Chicago’s famous Christkindlmarket where Daley Plaza becomes an old German village filled with quaint shops and holiday treats. Next, you’ll make our way over the river and up to ZooLights, where Lincoln Park transforms into a brilliant array of lights, music, and crafts for the whole family. Finally, take one last look at the city’s lights as you weave your way back to Michigan Avenue and the John Hancock Center.
