Chicago freebies makes it my kind of town.

One of the many things that surprises and delights visitors to Chicago is how easy this world-class city is on their wallets. Some of the city's most extraordinary attractions and cultural institutions are free every day, and many other popular visitor must-sees offer free days at least once a week! Treasures like famed Navy Pier, Lincoln Park Zoo, Millennium Park, and Chicago Cultural Center, which offers a mind-boggling array of music, art and theater, charge no admission fee and are open nearly every day of the year with exciting things for visitors of all ages to see and do. And these are just a fraction of the options available. Check out the current Chicago freebies here.

The Chicago Convention & Tourism Bureau has put together a few of their favorite freebies to share with you. They (the CVB) or your travel planner will work with you to create a customized itinerary designed to meet your particular interests, budget and time.
