Brookfield Zoo

The 216-acre zoo is one of 5 in Chicago, but it's a favorite because it has many animals that you can only see in national parks.

This 265-acre attraction is not only one of the best zoos in the US, but it is also the biggest urban zoo in the country and one of the oldest. It has been open to the public since 1899.
