When your family is visiting all the way from New Zealand, it’s a must to have a family photo shoot! One of the best places in Chicago for a family session is Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park Zoo’s Nature Boardwalk offers stunning backdrops all year round.
While spring and summer are certainly the best times to visit due to the gardens being in full bloom, fall and winter can be just as beautiful. Nestled along the boardwalk are several picture-worthy spots such as the People’s Gas Pavilion (aka The Honeycomb), Ulysses S. Grant Monument, and the bridge overlooking the skyline. This is also the perfect spot to bring props such as bubbles!
Just a short walk from this route is North Avenue Beach which has a dock that offers one of the best skyline views in the city. Select the two-hour package to include this stop on your photo tour.
