Dive into the Windy City
Visit 32,000 different aquatic animals from all seven seas at Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium, including endangered species and a rescued sea otter named Ellie. Book a specialized tour to meet the aquarium’s penguins or beluga whales. Looking for something more adventurous? Book a shark feeding tour.
Check out exhibits like Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea, which features 16 animal sculptures made entirely from trash found on the beach or spend a night in at the aquarium at their appropriately named event — Asleep with the Fishes, which is perfect for families.
