Details: Lincoln Park Zoo & Observatory visit
The Lincoln Park zoo began in 1874 with a gift of a pair of swans--and has now grown to include more than 1250 species of animals. Currently, the zoo includes polar bears, penguins, monkeys, gorillas, and many varieties of reptiles. The Lincoln Park Zoo is also famous for its John Deere-sponsored Farm-in-the-Zoo exhibit. Located on a small working farm, the Farm-in-the-Zoo houses horses, pigs, cows, chickens and more.
Details: Wrigley Field guided visit
Any trip to Chicago wouldn’t be complete without a visit to “The Friendly Confines”. Built in 1914, Wrigley stands today as the oldest National League ballpark and the second oldest active major league park. Home to the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley is known for its ivy covered outfield walls and its hand operated scoreboard. While you’re there, be sure to take note of the surrounding buildings, many of which offer an unobstructed view of the field itself.
