It isn't simply because a couple of my sons worked on the great remodel they did several years ago, that I believe this is a perfect site to visit. But that helps! Zoos are going to more of a habitat space for animals and that makes things nicer for the animals and much better for the viewing public. Some may... More

I always stay in the Lincoln Park area there is always something going on. Culturally and nightlife. I have also been to the beautiful park the neighborhood is named after. I really liked the huge statue of Abraham Lincoln.

Walk to the lake, visit the zoo, or picnic in the park. It's a beautiful spot and a close walk to the city!

Lincoln Park is an excellent place to job, walk, take a stroller, bike, play soccer and enter the Lincoln Park Zoo. There is a beautiful conservatory at the north end of the park. In addition, there is a Farmer's Market each Saturday during the summer. The Park is open to all for free. Enjoy the Lincoln statue as well as... More

This park is super pretty and HUGE. We biked through this using one of the bikes in the DIVVY rental system. It's also less congested than Millennium Park. So, if you are looking for a place to relax and have some space, this park is perfect!

Lots to see, eat and enjoy. Local family owned restaurants, great sports bars and close enough to Downtown. The Zoo around the corner is FREE and one of the best city Zoos there is.

A wonderful zoo and free to the public. We couldn't see all of it in one visit so we plan to go back to see the rest of it during another summer vacation. It's in a lovely location with lots of trees and very family friendly.

This is a lovely place to walk in the shade and see Lake Michigan. You can also access the beach from here, and rent a blue city bike for an hour or two. Really lovely.

Lincoln Park is big, like, really big. It'll take you a while to go all around it, and you certainly don't have to do it in one shot. Stroll along the lake, or just go to the zoo, or wander into Old Town after meandering along the path for a while... that's all fun, and that can be three different... More
