Chicago’s Favorite Festive Tour Returns This Friday

The best initiation? Hopping on board a Chicago Trolley for the annual Holiday Lights Tour.

Underneath the John Hancock Center’s shining Christmas tree awaits a holiday trolley adorned in Christmas lights that will take you on a two-and-a-half hour excursion through brightly lit shopping districts in the Loop, stopping at the famous Christkindlmarket at Daley Plaza, then heading to illuminated holiday fun at ZooLights, before circling back to the John Hancock Center. Even better? You can enjoy a complimentary Sprinkles cupcake along the way.
