It’s that time of year again, and Christmas is bigger than ever in Chicago! From the lights down the Magnificent Mile, to the famous Kriskringle mart, or the Winter Wonderland at Navy pier, you be hard pressed to not find something to celebrate this holiday season in Chicago. What’s even cooler is that every PPM building, that’s right, every PPM building is at least steps to one of these amazing holiday celebrations.
So if you’re living at 750 North Rush, 2756 North Pinegrove, or 3130 North Lakeshore Drive, your just a hop skip and a jump to some holiday cheer. For this blog, we venture to Lincoln Park, more precise, Lincoln Park Zoo. Can you guess what we’re talking about? ZooLights, presented by ComEd and Powershares QQQ by Invesco!
