We suggest a day at the zoo, both you and your family will enjoy it.
Let's all go to the zoo!
Although it sits majestically in northern Chicago, in the neighbourhood of Streeterville, in the green space of the same name, if you like animals you must not miss the opportunity offered by this place. You will be entertained by the amusing antics of the gorillas and chimpanzees, you can admire the lazy hippopotamuses and African rhinoceroses or be thrilled by the howling of the wolves. In each part of the zoo you learn about the great diversity of animal life and, often, meet their young as well. Here you can meet face to face reptiles, mammals and animals from all over the world, or, simply, have a relaxing stroll around the gardens, attend a botanical class or even do yoga. Open every day of the year and free, you can get there on bus number 151 or 156 or on the brown or purple train line. Younger children will enjoy riding the wooden endangered animals on the merry-go-round or going on the mini Express Train. For more information: http://www.lpzoo.org
