    by Alien Written Aug 24, 2002

    For a pleasure in leasure, go to the lake shore at dawn or at sunset - it's really relaxing, with the skyscrapers on the one hand and the lake on the other, while you watch (or actually join) the joggers and skaters. Also don't forget to visit Shedd Aquarium, Brookfield Zoo, or the Art Gallery. If you have time for a day-trip, take a local train and go to Oak Park, which is a pleasant suburb of Chicago and is famous for Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio (plus the numerous houses he planned) as well as for Ernest Hemmingway, whose birthplace can be visited.

    The last free zoo in the country! It's a lot of fun when the weather is nice. There are other attractions around Lincoln Park, including a pond with paddle boats, and the park itself. The lake is to the east of the zoo, and to the west of a fun neighborhood for shopping and restaurants.

    This zoo is free to get in, and well worth your time. This zoo is big and has every beautiful animal you can think of. If you go I guarantee you will enjoy yourself. Have fun!

    Penguins at the Brookfield Zoo

    Chicago's premier zoo. Definitely worth a visit. A number of the exhibits are indoors so It is a great place to visit even in winter.

    Tiger at Lincoln Park Zoo

    Lincoln Park Zoo is open every day of the year and is free. There are lots of animals there. If you are going at the weekend or on a public holiday watch out as it can be a bit of a zoo.
