A Chicago tradition for all ages, the Holiday Lights Tour explores the city’s iconic seasonal landmarks, such as the Macy’s Holiday Windows, Christkindlmarket and Lincoln Park ZooLights for a one-of-a-kind evening taking in the magic of the holidays. Each tour begins at the John Hancock Plaza Tree (875 N. Michigan Avenue), where riders board festively-named trolleys and then travel to Sprinkles Cupcakes to receive a complimentary handcrafted cupcake before heading down the Magnificent Mile to take in the glittering lights and begin the tour. The Holiday Lights Tour runs November 24 – December 23 and tickets ($18 - $49) are available now at ChicagoTrolley.com.
Throughout the 2 ½ hour lightly narrated tour, the Holiday Lights Tour begins at the John Hancock Plaza Tree and takes passengers past the Macy’s Holiday Windows, to The Loop’s famous German-inspired Christkindlmarket, which transforms Daley Plaza into a quaint German village with shopping and holiday treats. Next, trolleys will go over the river to the brilliant array of lights and music at Lincoln Park’s ZooLights, followed by a journey down Michigan Avenue for one last glimpse at the lights of the city. At both Christkindlmarket and ZooLights, passengers disembark from the trolley and explore two of Chicago’s classic holiday experiences.
