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.
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.
