Explore the Windy City: 3 Chicago-Area Attractions for Family Fun!

Planning a trip to Chicago? Check out these fun area attractions!

  • Throw a picnic at Lincoln Park Zoo. Whether you have a backyard or not, head over to LP zoo for the perfect summer backdrop. 
  • Go to Navy Pier! Take a spin on the iconic Ferris wheel. The pier is also home to Chicago's Children's Museum and Chicago Shakespeare Theatre. 
  • Visit 360 Chicago (formally the Hancock Observatory). View the city from the 94th floor of the third tallest building in Chicago. Check out the new ride, TILT, which offers guests downward-facing views up to 1000 feet up!

And that's only a small taste of what Chicago has to offer families!
