SHEDD AQUARIUM – 1200 S Lake Shore Dr., Chicago, IL 60605, (312) 939-2438, sheddaquarium.org
Q-TIPS SAY: If you you have not been there in awhile, SEE IT! Check out these exhibits: Amazon Rising, Caribbean Reef, Jellies, Abbott Oceanarium, Polar Play Zone, Waters of the World, At Home on the Great Lakes and Wild Reef. We saw and enjoyed. And also the Dolphin Show.
Mrs. Q says: Have heard negative comments about the Shedd Aquarium being an expensive venture.
1. Check out the FREE DAYS for Illinois residents – Bring an ID and get to see the main exhibits for FREE.
2. Any SPECIAL EXHIBITS that are offered on the Free Days are at a Discounted Price.
3. Save expensive parking fees by taking PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION – the El or Bus.
Mrs. Q says it may not be all FREE but it is Chicago-on-the-cheap or at least cheaper.
Mrs.Q says: After spending the day looking at fish, crabs, dolphins, whales, yes even the pregnant whale, we had to go eat some fish at Shaw’s Crabhouse.
