Zoos in Illinois
Illinois might be called The Prairie State, but given the amazing animal experiences kids can enjoy across the many zoos and farms, it could almost be The Wild State!
Animals from ALL over the world are waiting for you at the many zoos, from Peoria Zoo to Henson Robinson Zoo, and of course the 216 acres at Brookfield Zoo. You can't go past the famous Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, either!
Did you know that some zoos are great for kids - especially Cosley Zoo where kids under 17 get in FREE!
There are Australian wallabies in Scovill Zoo, alligators in Summerfield Zoo, carousels and playgrounds in Niabi Zoo, and fishing, hiking and mountain biking at Wildlife Prairie Park!
Don't forget about places such as Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, where you can explore the magic of the world's underwater zoo - without getting wet!
It's a WILD time in the wild state - and the animals are waiting for YOU!
