11 Reasons No One In Their Right Mind Visits Chicago In The Winter
A wintertime trip to the Windy City is crazy talk. It’s winter in Chicago, and that means one thing: nothing. No one visits here this time of year, and here are 11 reasons why:
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. The weather is ugly.
It's so disgusting in Chicago during wintertime that people stop taking pictures of the city. Snow ruins everything.
2. The views are ruined.
Say goodbye to that beautiful skyline you love so much. Blizzards and fog make it impossible to see this time of year.
3. No one goes outside.
Chicago is a ghost city this time of year. You won't find anyone in their right mind exploring the streets in the cold snowy messes we get
4. It's impossible to drive.
Don't plan on driving if you want to visit the city in wintertime. Snow shuts down all the streets so it's impossible to get around.
5. It's a complete white out.
Color is completely gone from the city this time of year. Your photos will look like a polar bear in a snow storm.
6. There's no place to exercise.
Most people use the city as their jungle gym, but as no one goes outside this time of year, we all get a little plumper during the cold months. There's just no where to go to burn off that energy.
7. Everything shuts down.
Forget fun attractions, parks, and other amazing Chicago sites. They all shut down this time of year or look gross.
8. There's nothing to do.
Visit Chicago in wintertime and you'll be bored our of your skull. No one is having a good time, and you won't either.
9. No one has fun.
Seriously, this is not a time for laughter and games. Even children stay hidden indoors. The conditions are just too harsh.
10. You could get trapped here.
If a downfall of snow hits while you're visiting the city, you could get trapped here until it melts. Chicago doesn't clean its streets.
11. It feels like it will never end.
The worst part about winter in Chicago is that it feels endless. Will spring ever come again? Our chances seem bleak.
