Holiday Trip to Chicago
Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, 8:15 a.m. - 7:15 p.m.
Zoological Society of Milwaukee field trip cost: $45 per person; $35 age 2 and under
In the past, the Zoological Society of Milwaukee's holiday field trip to Chicago took guests to the Magnificient Mile and State Street. This year we're trying something different—Christkindlmarket Chicago. This is Chicago's largest open-air festival, located in the Loop at Daley Plaza. Inspired by Christkindlmarket of Nuremburg, Germany, which began in 1545, this event has grown into a Chicago institution. Enjoy time-honored German food and drinks in a European setting, replete with diverse holiday entertainment. You can continue the tradition of shopping on State Street or the Magnificiant Mile, but you may need additional transporation because the Christkindlmarket Chicago is the drop-off and pick-up point. There will be tips on restaurants and other spots to shop in your confirmation letter and itinerary.

Your fee also includes transportation on restroom-equipped motor-coaches, beverages donated by PepsiAmericas®, and a snack on the return trip.
