Nice place for a walk

If you went to the Zoo, don't hesitate to extend your walk to the Lincoln Park. Especially if you like squirrels ;)

Well-maintained park with winding trails, topnotch educational (free) zoo, beautifully manicured conservatory, pristine blue lake, historic statues and markers, sailboats in peaceful harbors, dozens of sports, festivals, 5K races and farmers market. URBAN ENERGY YET PEACEFUL ESCAPE. Nearby offers world-class restaurants, trendy bars and clubs, boutique shopping, and charming neighborhoods. Lincoln Park = LOVE

Lincoln Park Zoo is an ideal free Chicago Gem. It sits a block from the Lakefront and has something for everyone. There's a petting zoo with farm animals (cow milking), rides and beautiful exotic/domestic animals as well. The venue has several eating areas and you can bring a lunch as well. There are various Naturalist "talks" schedulded throughout the day.

I lived within walking distance of the park and I can tell you it is a great area. The park is nice and they did host some smaller festivals in the summer. The Lincoln Park Zoo is also located right there which is a great attraction or families and couples alike. The zoo is free and so is the conservatory.... More

Just a short walk north from Michigan Avenue. This is a lovely park that the locals love. On Saturdays during the Summer there is a large open-air market that is fun to visit. Shady areas to sit in the quiet to rest are plentiful. Large open fields are used frequently for soccer games. Next to the Lincoln Park Zoo and... More

The park, zoo and conservatory are all free and great! This park is large with great walking / running trails. For being in the city, you cannot beat this.

B.L.U.E.S., the Chicago Diner and everything else - how could you go wrong. We had a great vegan meal and then moved on to the said blues club for an evening with Lil' Ed & the Blue Imperials

Superior place for many unusual animals. Children can pet some of the animals at the Children's Section. Many smiling, happy kids (and adults). And a small "train" ride saves steps and you can view animals while riding too. The Monkey House is great. Open all year, depending on weather. Call for hours.of viewing. Bring your lunch or buy from the... More
