6. Visit The Zoo Animals
You’d be surprised to know that the Lincoln Park Zoo is one of the best destinations to visit in Chicago during the winter. On the surface, the bitterly cold weather may seem like an odd pairing with a stroll through the Zoo, but we’d argue that those who miss out on visiting it are losing their chance to see something truly special.
During the wintertime, people will be able to see polar bears, penguins, and snow monkeys engaging in playful activities outside. There are also animal shelters that you can visit too — penguins, guinea pigs, and apes, all migrate indoors during the snowy months.
