Need an escape from the hot weather this week? Time to check out the Shedd Aquarium this week as general admission will be free for their Illinois Resident Discount Days.

Other dates from their website:

I can only imagine how busy it will be this week, so if you don’t have the patience you can bypass the lines by buying tickets ahead of time. Another way to experience the Shedd, is to go to their Jazzin’ at the Shedd events every Wednesday evening during the summer. We scored a Groupon again this year for $18 for 2 adult admissions. We went last year and had a blast and would recommend it to anyone and everyone
 who wants to enjoy the Shedd with less crowds, music and for less. (Review here)

Thanks, Mummy Deals!
