Where

I’m a sponsor and a volunteer at Shedd Aquarium. Many of their mammals were injured in the wild and  the aquarium will rehab the mammals and re-release them if they can survive. If not, they remain at the Shedd as a permanent home. As you can imagine, the Shedd is a great place for kids, and they get to encounter 32,000 animals from the world’s aquatic environments, including sting rays you can touch and a live dolphin show. The Shedd was the first inland aquarium with permanent saltwater exhibits as well as freshwater habitats.

Racertrips™ Tips

  • If, by some miracle, you have time or energy the day of the marathon, you can gain free entry for 1 person by presenting a valid Bank of America/Merrill Lynch ATM, credit or debit card, along with photo identification.
  • Want a beautiful snapshot of Lake Michigan and the city skyline? Before or after your visit, head to the north side of the aquarium (by the lake and the Lakefront Trail).
  • This is a popular attraction for children.
