If you've brought the whole family to visit the Windy City, here are a few Chicago attractions that your kids will probably love.
Inside of the Morton Arboretum is a children’s garden that offers plenty of ways to learn about science and the natural world. The larger garden contains 10 smaller themed gardens, including the Curiosity Garden and the Windmill Garden. Kids can also splash through streams, adventure through a meadow and under logs, and participate in Children’s Garden programs to get a more hands-on experience.
Show your children the wonders of the underwater world with a trip to the Shedd Aquarium. This family-friendly attraction is home to animals like penguins, frogs and sea lions, as well as aquatic creatures like tropical fish and large sharks. Exhibits are separated into the Caribbean Reef, Polar Play Zone, and many others.
Lincoln Park Zoo
If your little one is an animal lover, he or she will most likely adore a day spent at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Animals like lions, giraffes, polar bears, and giant snakes roam the grounds in areas that mimic their natural habitats—all from a safe distance from tiny visitors, of course. The zoo is completely free, and the entire facility is family-friendly and tailored to visitors of all ages.
