Chicago's Swan Song


Lincoln Park, perhaps best known for it's free zoo which is open all year, began its existence as a cemetery. Named posthumously for President Lincoln, the surrounding upscale neighborhood also bears it's name. Lincoln Park stretches along the lakefront for miles (1208 acres) and contains, in addition to the zoo, an outdoor theatre, a rowing canal, a Nature Museum, ponds, playing fields, statues of Lincoln, General Grant and Hans Christian Anderson, and a restaurant. These swans "swim" in front of the restaurant and add another treat to what's on the menu.
