About Lincoln Park Zoo

The Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago is one of the oldest zoos in the country, opening its gates in 1868. Home to over 1,100 animals from more than 200 species, the zoo is one of the few with free admission. Many of the animals were donated from other states such as the four swans from New York, a bear cub from the Philadelphia Zoo, and bison from Yellowstone National Park. 

With 49 acres divided into 15 sections, you can visit all the animals from the hippos, rhinos, and giraffes of the African Journey to the swans, geese, and flamingos at the Waterfowl Lagoon. The Center for African Apes and the Helen Branch Primate House are two of the favorites for many visitors. And the Children’s Zoo is not just for kids. Go on in and see what they have.

Recharge at the Safari Café with some hot dogs or burgers and beer at the Bird’s Eye Bar & Grill. The Park Place Café has a huge variety of food from nachos to ice cream. Take the train to the carousel for a ride or stroll on the Nature Boardwalk, where you can see even more flora and fauna. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop for some awesome souvenirs like t-shirts and stuffed animals.

Fun Fact: Café Brauer at the zoo has become a popular wedding spot for lovers all over the world, some renting the entire zoo for 20,000 guests.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
