It might not be the ideal temperature to visit the Brookfield Zoo, but... there's a very ideal reason why you want to visit this month.

Or next, because this deal runs though February as well.

So what's that amazing reason?

It's free!

Yep, absolutely free if you visit Brookfield Zoo in January or February on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays!

Yep, weekends are included.

So maybe today... when it's below zero you don't want to bundle up to see the lions and tigers, but we are in for a winter heat wave... of like 30 something next week, so get those scarves on and head to Brookfield.
