Zoos in Chicago, IL

Chicago is a city filled with fun things to do with the family, and if you like animals, then you will be right in your element!

This Illinois capitol city is home to a number of incredible, fascinating and fun animal attractions that are perfect for the whole family. They are invaluable learning experiences too!

Right in the heart of the city you will find the amazing Lincoln Park Zoo – one of the OLDEST zoological gardens in the entire country. The intimate setting gives kids unbeatable encounters, where they can get face to face with creatures from all over the world. Look around too, because the zoo is also famous for it’s historical structures that are still standing today!

Brookfield Zoo is another great option, spanning 216 acres. Here, the whole family can encounter the weird and wonderful, and enjoy themed events across the year (great for Halloween and New Years Eve!), as well as enjoy fascinating tours such as behind the scenes, and Zookeeper for a Day.

Don’t think the animal encounters in Chicago are all ABOVE ground though! Head to Shedd Aquarium and you can meet over 32,000 creatures that call the sea home – and some you can even touch!

Get ready for ROARing kids fun on your next family day out!
