Yep Chicago was first, second place went to Washington DC, followed by Atlanta, Cincinnati and New York rounded out the top 5. . Chicago is filled to the brim with winter activities Like Ice skating at Millennium park, a visit to the Art Institute and something that's really awesome is the Lincoln Park Zoo lights festival. But that's not all, another favorite is taking a stroll down Michigan Avenue or even checking out the Magnificent Mile Holiday lights Festival. It's good to know that the number one Holiday vacation destination is only a little over an hour away.
