The Windy City is full of fun activities for the whole family! Visit the Shedd Aquarium where your kids will happily spend the whole day exploring the exhibits, watching Beluga whales play and catching the cool jellyfish show.

Another can't miss spot? Bring your kids to the Lincoln Park Zoo and see all the adorable new baby animals for a fun-filled day that's sure to be easy on your wallet because admission is free!

For an afternoon treat, bring your little ones to the brand-new Maggie Daley Park which has attractions like a rock climbing wall and bridge. During the winter, you'll also want to check out the ribbon-shaped ice skating rink!

Must-See: To better admire Chicago's famous skyline, make sure one of the architecture tour boat rides is on your list. You'll learn about the fire that burned down the Windy City and the story behind some of the city's most iconic buildings. 

Seeing all Chicago has to offer is no easy task! After a tiring day checking out the city or for a mid-afternoon break, you'll want to bring your kids back to the hotel. One of the biggest costs of traveling is the high price of eating out for every meal. Cut your costs and enjoy local cuisine by checking out one of the many local farmers markets or stores and bring back your goodies to prepare right in the hotel room.

Staybridge Suites located near the city in Glenview, IL feature a kitchen in your room, which makes it easy to prepare delicious meals. Another plus? The hotel offers huge suites so you're guaranteed privacy and plenty of room for the entire family!
