One of our favorite places to visit in the winter is Shedd Aquarium. It's a great escape from the chilly Chicago weather and there's always a new creature to meet.
Plus, January and February are packed full of free days so the only thing you have to pay for is a locker for your coat. And don't forget that if you're a Bank of America customer, the first full weekend of every month is always free at Shedd.
To help your family make the most of a trip to Shedd, we've pulled together this list of simple tips.You might also like:
If by some really strange sequence of events, you have yet to visit the Jellies exhibit, you're in luck. The exhibit has been extended through 2013 and you don't want to miss it. The exhibit costs $3, but if you go on a free day, it's an affordable add-on.
The jellyfish are truly amazing creatures to learn about and watch and each tank is at a nice height for every member of the family.
