3. Chicago, Illinois
Millions of holiday lights strung up around the Magnificient Mile makes Christmas a wonderland. The Christkindlmarket, a large outdoor German craft market, and the Navy Pier’s Winter WonderFest, a holiday-themed amusement park with an indoor skating rink are some of the big attractions. The Christkindlmarket alone attracts a million visitors each year. Everything in Chicago is Christmas this time of the year.
