Kid-friendly and free, this zoo--nestled in the middle of Lincoln Park--is a must-see for children year-round. A host of activities and irresistible ice cream stands sprinkled throughout the property make the zoo an especially popular destination for hot days.
With a giant Ferris wheel, amusement rides, dining, shopping and more, Navy Pier offers enough entertainment to keep the family occupied all day long. Festival Hall houses indoor activities for rainy days, and the Ferris wheel is open even in winter--if your kids want to brave the cold--for a fantastic view of the city.
