A Trip to Chicago – Enjoy its Fun Attractions

Shedd Aquarium

Chicago is a big city and also a financial hub, so skyscrapers and towering buildings are usual sights here. Last year, I went taking my kids to see this wonderful city in the US. We were on a four-day tour of the city and our main purpose of visiting the city would be to have as much fun as we can. Our tour operator suggested us some very important tips and we really had a great holiday experience in Chicago.

Talking about the fun attractions in Chicago, they are many – some very expensive, others are within budget limits, and quite a few are absolutely free. For example, Millennium Park and Lincoln Zoo are free to enter and we really had a great time there with our kids. It was an amazing experience to see a number of exotic animals all at one place. Similarly, it was sheer thrill to experience the various attractions of Millennium Park.
