1. Take in Some Views at the Zoo
One of the country’s few free zoos is also one of its best (and oldest). Located in the heart of one of Chicago’s most sought after neighborhoods, the Zoo features around 1,100 animals from close to 200 species. Given this impressive number, it’s a safe bet you and your family will see a favorite animal or two. If all the great animal exhibitions weren’t enough, the Zoo also features a busy and varied event calendar and some awesome views of the city skyline.
And since you’re in the area, why not make a stop at the next spot on our list!
