5 Ways to Ring in the New Year on Chicago's North Shore

The new year is now just a mere days away, so why not start planning how you'll ring in 2017 on Chicago's North Shore? There are dozens of ways to celebrate the new year in Winnetka, Glencoe, Deerfield, Highland Park, Northbrook and the surrounding areas and as your local real estate expert, I'm happy to share a few of them with you below!

It's a Wonderful Life: Live Radio Play
December 30, 2016
Oil Lamp Theater, Glenview IL

This classic North Shore event is back again this year! Attend the show for complimentary cookies and hot chocolate and witness a cast of six actors reenact the popular It's a Wonderful Life story with the help of only a sound effects artist— as though it is Christmas Eve 1946 at WBFR Radio.

New Year's Eve at Pinstripes
December 31, 2016
Pinstripes, Northbrook IL

Head out to Pinstripes to watch two balloon drops, the first beginning at 8 PM (ideal for the kids!) and the second at midnight. There will be complimentary champagne, party favors and live music for all to enjoy. You can also try your hand at the pins as both the bowling lanes and bocce courts will be open!

New Year's Eve Bash
December 31, 2016
Kohl Children's Museum, Glenview IL

One entire wing of the museum will be transformed into a giant Times Square style party with a huge confetti drop to ring in the new year! The event lineup also includes a children's concert with Wendy Morgan & DB, DJ and dance party, hat making and horns, free hair styling, family photos and more! Kids under 12 months are free.

New Year's Day Skate
January 1, 2017
Winnetka Ice Arena, Winnetka IL

The holiday season may be coming to an end, but the winter fun is still alive and well in Winnetka! Celebrate the new year with an open skate around the ice arena. Admission is $2 and skate rentals are $3.50.

Wonderland Express
Through January 2, 2017
Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe IL

Kick off the new year on the North Shore with this light show, greenhouse extravaganza, railroad garden and more! Here you can find the city of Chicago in miniature form, explore while it magically snows indoors and take in every holiday exhibition before it ends on January 2! This display has been called one of the Chicago area's top holiday "must-see's," so you won't want to miss it!

The new year is also an excellent time to consider moving to a new home in Winnetka, Glencoe, Deerfield, Highland Park, Northbrook and beyond! Give me a call today for more information about available properties and next steps in the buying process.

Have a safe and happy new year!
