Lincoln Park Zoo Presents ZooLights

Head to the Lincoln Park Zoo to see the lights (and maybe a few animals) at this annual winter tradition. The first 1000 people through the gates each night receive special glasses to view the lights with, but everyone can enjoy nightly ice carving demonstrations, hot beverages and ice skating on the zoo's rink.

My mom and sister were visiting from out of town, so I figured Zoo Lights was a good choice to take them to. They LOVED it, especially my mom. It was freezing that night, which I thought would make it a bad night, but we didn't even mind. It's nice that there are plenty of indoor opportunities with the different animals, so you can get a break from the cold if you need it. My only complain is that the penguin exhibit wasn't done yet! That's probably not the zoo's fault though because you know.... construction.

I've been coming to ZooLights for the last 10 years and always have a good time. The lights are a fun and (more importantly) free way to entertain family or friends who may be in town for the holidays. Be sure to bundle up, though. Most activities are outside, but there are opportunities to get out of the cold and see some of the Lincoln Park Zoo's animal exhibits.
