      https://www.sheddaquarium.org/ticketprices.html <---an aquarium in
      chicago, pricey, but you can also get passes that let you see 5
      different attractions in Chicago for 1 price, including the AMAZING
      Musuem of Science & Industry. I’ve been there twice, both times with
      school trips (once for me, once as a chaperone for my little
      sister), and loved it both times. They have a working coal mine!

      The
      link goes directly to pricing. You can choose many different types
      of tickets.

      Don’t forget to look for just regular parks! Down time to play is
      great for kids, and resembles thier regular routine more so than
      sight seeing all day. Find a grocery store, buy a loaf of bread, and
      some pb&j, juice boxes, etc, and make a picnic lunch.

      Left over
      bread can be used to feed ducks, or to save for snack sandwiches
      later in the trip.
