Planning your FREE spring break staycation

Spring break is around the corner!  If you are like me and short on cash, a staycation is in your future!  That does not mean you can’t have the spring break experience because you aren’t soaking up the sun in Los Cabos!  My boyfriend and I are actually planning some FREE spring break activities in the city!  Here are a few things we came across

 Monday Night:

The ComedySportz Theatre
929 W. Belmont

“The Chaser” – 9:30 p.m.


The Chaser is a totally free standup open mic where the prize is a chance to perform in next week’s professional set.  It a great place to go if you or someone you know loves the limelight and being on stage!



Shedd Aquarium

1200 S. Lake Shore Drive
(312) 939-2438


Illinois residents can enjoy free general admission. This includes 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!


Lincoln Park Zoo

2001 N. Clark St.

(312) 742-2000


I live in Lincoln Park and I actually go to the zoo a lot during the summer time, but it holds some significance for my boyfriend and me.  Right by the zoo is a conservatory and a nature boardwalk.  On a pleasant day, it is a very nice stroll.

Side Note:  Lincoln Park Zoo has a new male African Lion that moved into the exhibit in August!  His name is Sahar!


Next week:  I will finish off the rest of your FREE Spring Break Staycation!  

Stay strong in your studies peeps!  Spring Break is just around the corner! Does anyone currently have any cool plans?
