Visiting Chicago With Kids!

January 5, 2019

We loved visiting Chicago with our sons, we’ve gone several times. Soo, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite things to do there!

1) Where to stay: I suggest instead of staying downtown, you stay at the new Great Wolf Lodge! Downtown hotel parking can be quite spendy, so I like to drive in or take public transportation. The indoor water park is so fun!

2) Visit the Shedd Aquarium– This is a given, I suggest you order tickets in advance. UNLESS you’re getting complimentary military tickets or some other discount and don’t have the option.

3) LEGOLAND Discovery Center- This was such a fun place to go with the kids, so I wanted to share this with you guys.

4) Museums are kid friendly and amazing- We loved the Field Museum & Chicago museum of science & technology   
[Insider tip: Check to see if your local children’s museum has an agreement with other museums for free admission, we saved a ton of money in Chicago this way!]

5) Eat pizza.

6) Lincoln Park Zoo: I love that this is a free place to visit as a family, but wow.. it’s amazing and I would have gladly paid for it. There was so much to enjoy & see!
