Here in Chicago we don’t see a lot of sea life unless it’s at a museum. I think I can speak for myself and every other Chicagoan when I say that anything that continues to live in the Chicago River is not something we want to be acquainted with and that the fishermen who fish in Lake Michigan are doing it for sport. Or so I hope. That is why we treasure the Shedd Aquarium! The Shedd Aquarium is our window into the world of beautiful and healthy water life.
Shedd Aquarium Free Days 2014: While visiting the Shedd Aquarium can sometimes feel like a tourist attraction for us natives, they do offer free days just for us! Illinois residents can enjoy free general admission on various days throughout the year. So far 2014 includes the following free days:
June 2014: 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17
This list is subject to additions, but likely won’t change as far as what is currently included. The free pass permits you into the Waters of the World, Amazon Rising, and the Caribbean Reef. Packages including Wild Reef, Polar Play Zone and Abbott Oceanarium are available to Illinois residents at a discounted rate.
The Shedd Aquarium is a great way to spend a day by yourself or with family or friends. It is a clean environment that has both exhibits and a fun dolphin show among many other staples. If you are on a budget or just looking for something great to do with the kids, be sure to take advantage of the Shedd Aquarium Free Days 2014!
