Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago -- Open 365 days a year, the Lincoln Park Zoo is just a few minutes from Chicago; you can actually hear the lion’s roar echo off nearby apartment buildings. And yet, if you want to feel like you’ve gotten away from city life, you can retreat to the re-created rainforests or savannas. Kids will enjoy the colorful Bird House and Bear Habitat, and you’ll pretend not to squirm when you visit the Lion House or get close to a boa in the Small Mammal-Reptile House.
Millennium Park- a collection of architecture, landscape design and art that provides a backdrop for hundreds of free cultural programs including concerts, exhibitions, tours, and family activities. A spectacular gathering spot in the heart of the city and a destination for Chicagoans and visitors alike.
