Before Christmas we went over to the Lincoln Park Zoo to see all their holiday lights. It was super pretty- you should go! They’ll be on from 5-9pm through Sunday January 6th, so you didn’t miss them. It wasn’t as crowded as I thought it would be, just lively. So don’t worry about that. And, as always, it’s free to get in.
You can also check out the animals- the big cats are especially fun to watch prowl around in the darkness.
