Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool
Destination: Lincoln Park Zoo is next door to the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, but you won't hear a single screech here. Passing through the gates is like stepping into a Monet painting; you'll wonder how a city of 3 million has a garden this quiet. Free (chicagoparkdistrict.com).
What you'll see: Water rushes over limestone rocks, benches invite contemplation and flowers float on quiet, rock-edged pools.
Tip: The park has no parking, so take the CTA's 151 bus north from the Mag Mile, get off at Fullerton and walk 1 block east.
