The Lincoln Zoo is very large and clearly divided. There are mammals, primates, reptiles, and there are also African regions. There are also areas for children to play. Although there are not many animal species, there are quite a lot of knowledge points. Because of its large area, it does not look particularly crowded. Bus No. 151 arrives at the door, and there are many parking spaces. There are only two restaurants and snacks. Not enough.
Dry nice family friendly environment. It's FREE year round. A lot of new attractions.
Besides the Zoo Lincoln Park stretches for miles along the lake front. With world class beaches, wonderful open spaces and wooded bird sanctuaries. Great fun to check out the harbors in the summer and the natural ice sculptures that can occur in the winter. It is one of Chicago's greatest assets. Just a mil from the Ginkgo Leaf it should not be missed.
Love this zoo. Been there many times and it never fails to fascinate with its great assortment of animals. Going again this weekend.
Across the Street from Hotel Lincoln is the Saturday and Wednesday Farmer's Markets from Spring to Fall. Enjoy!
