I'm not a fan of zoos. That said, if you are going to visit one, this is a relatively nice one. Conveniently located in a gorgeous park. I hate to see the animals living in captivity but this zoo is more humane than most and has a wide variety of animals.

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.

This is the zoo of my childhood. We'd beg our parents to take us there, then spend hours looking at the gorillas, elephants, and monkeys. My favorite was the lion house. Later as a teen I'd ride my bike there, and then, as an adult I'd go in winter just to see the ducks sliding around on the iced over ponds. A world-class zoo that also serves as a green space in the midst of the big city. Big plus, it's free and open every day.
