3 Places to Enjoy the Last of Winter on Chicago's North Shore

According to the Groundhog, we're in for an early spring on Chicago's North Shore! But before you start planning your garden and organizing your spring vacation, there are a few places in the area you might like to visit during these final few weeks of the winter season!

We'll all be heading outdoors soon, so why not venture indoors to get away from the cold and enjoy all that the North Shore has to offer? Whether you're dreaming of a weekend staycation or simply a day trip to a spot you've never been, I'm happy to share the following North Shore locales:

Winnetka Ice Arena
490 Hubbard Road
Winnetka, IL 

The Winnetka Ice Arena is the perfect place to show off your ice skating skills or try something new! Public skating is available Monday through Thursday until May 26 and Saturday and Sundays until March 20. Adults can skate for $7 and youth (ages 5 to 17) for $6, both with a $3.50 skate rental per session. You can also catch the Spring Skating Exhibition on March 12 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM to watch the Free Skate program participants demonstrate their skills!

Chicago Botanic Garden
1000 Lake Cook Road
Glencoe, IL

The Chicago Botanic Garden has been a must-visit on Chicago's North Shore for more than 40 years! It is one of the world's great living museums and conservation science centers, including 26 gardens, 4 natural areas, 385 acres and 6 miles of shoreline. Winter hours for the Garden are 8 AM to Sunset through March 31. You can also visit the Garden February 14 through March 14 for their renowned Orchid Show!

Athletico Center
1900 Old Willow Rd
Northbrook, IL

When the temperatures drop, head indoors to the Athletico Center in Northbrook! The Athletico Center is the North Shore's premier sports and event center and offers a variety of activities from leagues to classes to birthday parties. The space is home to the IBJI Fieldhouse (a massive indoor field surface), Basketball Court and Event Center (a 7,300 square foot court), a party and meeting room and an outdoor patio (a 2,600 square foot area with outdoor fireplace and grill).
