Pick Up A Pizza

No trip to Chicago is complete without a visit to one of the world famous pizzeria. Such as Rosati’s. Chicago pizza rivals that of those that you can purchase in either New York or even Italy and has a unique and authentic flavor. One distinct feature is also the crust which is thicker than pizzas you might have tried before.

Say Hello To The Animals

If you are visiting Chicago with the family then you can also take a trip to Lincoln park zoo, as the name suggests this is located in the centre of Lincoln Park. There are more than 1000 animals to encounter. The zoo is particularly noteworthy as it is one of the last free zoos operating in the country today. Despite Covid still being apparent all of the zoos restrictions have now been lifted while it is still advised that you wear a mask this certainly makes it easier as a day out that you can plan for you and your kids.

As well as being the perfect place to relax this park also plays host to public art work and a range of special events.
