As well as the zoo, there’s a heap of other things you can do as well as watching everyday life in Chicago.

Lincoln Park

A day in the open air.

Why not walk around Lincoln Zoo and get to know this marvellous green area? What could be more typically American than bringing a basket, a rug and having a picnic in Chicago's largest park? Because of the many sports stadiums, it is not unusual, when the weather is good, to see groups of local people playing baseball, basketball, football, tennis, volleyball and even golf. In this park, with its privileged position on the shores of Lake Michigan, there are thousands of possibilities: you can sunbathe, swim at the public beaches, wander around the gardens, appreciate the birds and wild flowers at the Lincoln Park Conservatory, watch a play in the open-air theatre or enjoy the statues of president Abraham Lincoln or the German playwright Johann Friedrich von Goethe. Interestingly, years ago this park used to be a small public cemetery.
