Winter isn't exactly the most popular time to take a trip to Chicago, affectionately known as the Windy City — actually for its political blowhards, but it could also be for those frigid Winter winds. But if you're willing to bundle your family up, braving the elements can be a ton of fun. Plus, during the colder months, you'll find great deals on hotels with prime locations — we're talking less than $100 for a room right on the Mag Mile, a nickname for Michigan Avenue.
