Walk in Chicago # 6, Lincoln Park and the lakeside
Walk in Chicago # 6, Lincoln Park and the lakeside, takes you to see exotic animals and plants and then an almost secret garden. It then follows the edges of the lake with superb views of the Downtown Chicago skyscrapers and the possibility of stopping on fine sandy beaches.
With some extra steps at the end, it can also be combined with Walk in Chicago # 4 (the Magnificent Mile and the Gold Coast) which will have to be done in reverse in order to reach the city center.
This walk is about 3 miles in a straight line, more with all the visits. It will take you at least half a day to complete it if you want to do everything, eat there, go to the beach.
The pdf is 6 pages, includes a clickable map, detailed explanations of the path to follow and 8 photos taken along the way. It also tells you where there are toilets, places to sit and places to eat.
