Such a lovely park. You'll need all day to explore around here and good walking shoes or hire a bike. The wildlife reserve around there is beautiful, full of wildlife and wild flowers. I highly recommend a visit and bring your cameras.

After a large lunch a walk through Lincoln Park is the perfect after-activity. Give yourself enough time to stroll through the zoo as well. Why not? It’s free! We saw at least 3 weddings in progress… a beautiful setting for such a momentous event.

A charming little park about 10 minutes north of downtown Chicago. You can reach this by car via Lakeshore Drive or by bike along the Lakeshore Trail, both offering beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the magnificent Chicago skyline panoramic. Free parking is available west of the park, but you must be willing to venture a few blocks into the... More

This is right next to the zoo, in fact at one of the exits you can begin your walk though the park. It is beautiful and so peaceful. Loved walking through nature and seeing the skyline in the distance.

Can't beat free. It is uniquely located between the city and the lake so I have to give the zoo credit for creating an non-city atmosphere. Having said that, I'm not a fan of zoos and seeing animals all couped up makes me feel uneasy. If you like zoos, this is a nice one.

I'm lucky to live in walking distance to Lincoln Park because when I want to disconnect and enjoy the outdoors, the nature boardwalk is a great escape. The wildflowers, grasslands, water and trails in the heart of the city are wonderful. It's nice to walk across the pedestrian bridge to continue walking along the lakefront too.

Lincoln Park is fairly sizable park with many amenities for it being so close to downtown. The Zoo, the Conservatory - both FREE - the Chicago History Museum, and the Peggy Noterbaert Nature Museum are located in the park. It's easier to get to by bus than train and parking can be difficult to find during high season times. However,... More

We have lived on North Dearborn Parkway since 1983. One of the perks is that we have a wonderful view of Lincoln Park, from North Avenue Beach to Diversey Harbor. I've been to Central Park in New York but Lincoln Park has it beat. Central Park doesn't have Lake Michigan. Or Lincoln Park Zoo. Or the Lincoln Park Conservatory. Every... More

We spent several hours at this zoo and I must say it is probably one of the most enjoyable zoos that I have visited. The variety of animals, Apes, Monkeys, Giraffes, Polar Bears, Kangaroos, Birds, Reptiles on and on... I've never seen animals at a zoo so active, monkeys swinging, bears swimming, otters playing. Plenty of mature trees to provide... More
