Something for nothing! The Lincoln Park zoo allows you to see up close and personal a few of the living beings we are destroying. Take your kids so that they can tell their children they once saw an animal that mankind made extinct.

Another beautiful park where people gather, walk their dogs, play soccer, and just get outside. Chicagoans really have some nice choices for how to get out and enjoy the sunshine and nature - this is one of them!
