Chicago is such a great city, and it offers so many activities for locals and tourist. Most of which you can do free of charge! I’ve decided to take on an ongoing project while I’m in Chicago and explore all of its activities. Who said being broke is boring?!
1. Lincoln Park Zoo
Its free everyday. Tourist, Locals, green people you name it, free! Parking can be quite expensive after 30 minutes, but if you pay attention to the street signs you can find free parking and avoid the city tow trucks!
2. Garfield Park Conservatory
Free parking, free conservatory (donations are welcomed) and free clean air! This is a great activity to do rain or shine as majority of the exhibits are indoor with the exception of one.
