Lovely lakeside park with pleasant holiday lights still up. The zoo is great. January is not the time to visit, however.

Plenty of walking trails and beautiful scenery. My all time favorite zoo that is free to walk through. Lots of great places in the area to eat like the Pasta Bowl!! We will make a day trio just for the stroll through the zoo and tasty food at the Past Bowl! So worth it!

Lincoln Park is Chicago's most beautiful park for a leisurely stroll. Visit the zoo, conservatory and farm in the zoo or just stroll past the ponds and gardens. Great gourmet dining in the park at North Pond or fun casual spots along like the park like RJ Grunts are wonderful options.

Lincoln Park is a wonderful spot for a stroll. There are many statues to discover as you go. Also, it is good for people watching. The south end of a park use to be a cemetery since in the 1800s it was the outskirts of the city. It also included burial spots for the Rebels from the Civil War. Graves... More

We ventured outside into the inner Chicago suburb of Lincoln Park. The place was full of upwardly mobile young men and women strutting up and down the street – either walking a small designer dog or clutching an i-somthing (ipad, iphone, ipod) and furiously thumbing it as they power walked past us. Lincoln Park’s various neighbourhoods enjoy an abundance of... More

Lincoln Park offers very scenic views and a nice way to relax. The walking trails are very easily navigated and it is a very safe area. We walked until well after dark and did not ever feel uncomfortable.

My brother and I jogged here from our hostel last year. When we got there we found some space to do a bit of boxing and running. There was plenty of area to keep to ourselves and not have to bother anyone. We then went further along some tracks and boardwalks and right up to the entrance of the zoo.... More

We walked the length of Lincoln park all the way to downtown. Great day along lake Michigan. You can rent bikes from citibike kiosks and ride the bike trail. Excellent outdoor activity with beaches, art, green space and incredible skyline views.
