It's not exactly a hidden gem; everyone knows the Lincoln Park
Zoo and most Chicagolanders have been there. But few of us really
take the time to appreciate what a gift it is to the city: a
world-class zoo, open 365 days a year, completely free? Almost too
good to be true. The zoo is always good for a casual walk-through,
especially the Farm at the Zoo, with its familiar barnyard animals
and farm landscape.
