Project 365–This Week in Photographs: Week 30

I was clearly spoiled living in Washington, DC for so long, because almost every major museum and tourist spot are free of charge. Chicago on the other hand tends to slap tourists with absurdly high fees. A visit to the Chicago Institute of Art will cost you around $23 if you’re from out of town. And, I would loved to tell you that other museums are cheaper but they’re not. So it’s hard to believe, but there are actually some free things to do in Chicago.  If you know where to look: Lincoln Park. The gardens, zoo, etc. in Lincoln Park are almost exclusively free.  (Of course parking will cost you anywhere from $20-25).

Even though it’s on the northern end of town and seems removed from the rest of Chicago, it’s worth the trip. I’ve seen a number of beautiful gardens and public spaces, and Lincoln Park ranks right up there. Even when I went on a Sunday, it was pleasant and not overly crowded. There are lots of trees (another rare find in Chicago), a lovely and old conservatory and small but well-maintained zoo.

Without question I had too many photographs from my trip up that way, so they take up a considerable chunk (ok all) of week 30’s photographs and a small snippet from week 31.
