For history buffs, the Field Museum offers a great opportunity to explore the natural history of the U.S. as well as the Midwest. Its history dates back to the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, which saw the invention of the Ferris wheel. The Field Museum became the home of the many collections from the exposition, like anthropological artifacts and geological specimens. Today the museum may be best known for its famous dinosaur SUE, the biggest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered, as well as displays of Egyptian mummies and the man-eating lions of Tsavo. The Field Museum is a gem of Chicago with many other world-renown collections of 40 million objects.
Chicago is also home to a wealth of public parks, ranging in size from expansive, like Millennium Park downtown, to small neighborhood parks. Many of the parks in the city are connected by a boulevard system, which is part of the National Register of Historic Places. This system connects the neighborhoods of Logan Square, Humboldt Park, Englewood, Back of the Yards, Lawndale, and Bronzeville. Hop on a bike-share bicycle or take a car ride to travel the boulevards and see these west-side neighborhoods and the beautiful parks and features along the way, including the Garfield Park Conservatory. As one of the largest greenhouse conservatories in the U.S., it spans about 4.5 acres inside and out. Stop by in the wintertime to cure your winter blues among the warmth of the greenhouse and beautiful foliage.
