Chicago is one of my favorite cities. Since I have visited Chicago so many times, each new visit means I need to find new things to do.
I had never visited Lincoln Park or the Lincoln Park Conservatory and Zoo. What a great diversion from Michigan Avenue! I stayed at the PUBLIC Chicago and found it to be an easy walk north to Lincoln Park. The zoo is surprisingly nice, housing a wide variety of animals. All of the animals were fun to view, expect the naked mole-rats!
The Lincoln Park Conservatory was a fun side trip and a warm place to stop. The Fernery has a large variety of plants and a cool fish pond.
