Chicago Part 1

Hey devoted readers!

Have to take a break from new blogs for a couple days… I’m working on a project. Enjoy my article on tourism in Chicago.

As Frank Sinatra sang, “Chicago is my kind of town.” With parks, museums, theaters, and restaurants, Chicago has a lot to offer a vacationing family.

Navy Pier is located at 600 E Grand Ave. More information can be obtained at 800-595-PIER or http://www.navypier.com. It is Chicago’s playground, with a variety of activities and scheduled programs, including Toddlin’ Thursdays for the tiny set and Family Fun Days. Pier Park includes a carousel, a giant ferris wheel, miniature golf, and other activities. Free entertainment is offered year-round, including fireworks displays.

Millennium Park is located at 201 E. Randolph St. More information can be obtained at 317-742-1168 or http://www.millenniumpark.org. This park offers guided nature tours, and is surrounded by unusual architecture and larger than life sculpture, including an interactive fountain. Ice skating is available during winter months, and a variety of live theater and outdoor concerts are available during warmer weather.

The Lincoln Park Zoo is located at 2001 N. Clark St. More information can be obtained at 317-742-2000 or http://www.lpzoo.org. The zoo has a multitude of small and large mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects to explore. There is a Farm-in-the-Zoo, a Nature Boardwalk, and special events throughout the year. The Pritzker Family Children’s Zoo is especially interactive.

That’s all for now!
