Your little monkey loves to climb, climb, climb. When he or she gets tired of scurrying up the ladders at the playground, head to an indoor tree house. You’ll find big, faux trees made just for kids at special spots around town, and they’re well worth the trip. Click through our album to see where you can make like Tarzan and Jane — swinging, climbing, sliding and playing the day away.

Treetop Canopy Climbing Adventure at Lincoln Park Zoo

The next time you say "hello" to the wild animals, make a pit stop at the Treetop Canopy inside the Children's Zoo. Nearly sweeping the ceiling with a maze of sturdy ropes and tunnels, this oasis looks like something out of Swiss Family Robinson. Climbers go in one side and climber higher to the middle and back down to the other side, and the fun is figuring out which opening will lead them the way that they want to go. It's a great spot to let active kids blow off some steam, and escape the cold or rain. Stick around inside to check out the small animal exhibits; there are turtles, snails and otters ready to meet you.
