Lincoln Park Zoo


We actually filmed at Lincoln Park Zoo a couple of times because there is SO much to see and do there.  The fact that this incredible zoo is in the middle of the city is pretty cool on it’s own, but it’s also FREE!  You can’t beat that!  Feeding the cows at the Dairy Barn was really fun and the children were so excited when the cows took the hay right from their hands! We did a fun scavenger hunt with my friend MJ Tam and her children.  MJ is a true Chicagonista and you can read all about her tips and Chicago related information on her website:


Unfortunately, not every animal gets displayed during certain seasons. Some animals can’t handle certain weather conditions, so our tip to you is if you want to see a certain animal, make sure that it’s available to visitors! During the winter months, however, the zoo offers Zoo Lights when the entire area is a feast for the eyes!


We did a lot of research for the show! Though we couldn’t visit every destination, we did want to show you what else we found.
