Lincoln Park Zoo

Benjamin and I went to Lincoln Park Zoo on Good Friday. I actually couldn’t remember when we visited the zoo before that. We had a great time. I highly recommend it if you are in town and have time. Admission is free. There are bus stops at the zoo. I think the one we took was No. 151 from downtown Chicago.

The zoo apparently has undergone extensive renovations. The Pritzker Family Children’s Zoo is totally new and terrific. Benjamin had a great time with the Treetop Canopy Climbing Adventure inside. Inside the same building, he also had a blast playing with 3 very playful and cute beavers. He moved his hands on the glass wall, and the beaver on the other side followed him. That was a lot of fun. Getting up close and personal with the polar bears is another highlight.

We went to the beach afterwards. As mentioned earlier, it was unseasonably warm.
