Chicago is a huge city which has many attractiions and activities for all of its citizens and visitors, but perhaps the best and definately one of the cheapest is Lincoln Park Zoo. It is home to thousands of different speicies of wildlife including bears, tigers, monkeys, reptiles, and birds. During my families venture there, we were able to see some pretty remarkable sights as you will see in this video I took in the monkey house.
And this one from the bear exhibit. I believe it was a black bear but I am not certain.
All these sights were compliments of free admission that Lincoln Park Zoo offers everyday. There are also several cafes and food carts which sell different types of food and beverages. Combine all these things with some wonderful Chicago weather and you are almost gauranteed to enjoy yourself!
