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.

I needed luggage storage near to Union Station in Chicago so this was as close as it gets. I was a bit put off by the neighborhood and the storefront but the gentlemen who were running the establishment were helpful with a good sense of humor at my difficulty figuring out how to run the app. I had it downloaded on my phone but didn't know how to maneuver it to show them what they wanted. This is a convenience-type of store that sells everything imaginable (and unimaginable as well) but I felt welcome and didn't have any reason to worry about my luggage. I didn't see anything that looked like a restaurant but there was a lot of snack food. I'd use them again.
Great experience at Americana Submarine in Chicago. The guys were very nice and took great care of my things. Will definitely use this service again!
My experience at the Wheeler mansion was positive, but I wish we'd received a bit more drop-off instructions prior to arrival in Chicago. The Wheeler mansion is gated and we were not aware at first that it was okay to open the gate and go right up to the house.
