Whether you’re a hiker, biker, boater, thrill seeker, foodie or music lover, you’ll find fun in Lake County. Just a short ride north of Chicago, Lake County shines in the summer with miles of spectacular natural beauty, hundreds of lakes, rivers and waterways and sandy beaches along Lake Michigan. Home to Six Flags Great America & Hurricane Harbor and three resorts including the popular KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark, the area is a rich hub for family entertainment, festivals and fairs. In the evening enjoy a concert under the stars at Ravinia Festival or other local outdoor venues. For exceptional musical theatre try Marriott Theatre or see a performance at the magnificent Genesee Theatre. For indoor family fun, visit Volo Auto Museum. You will find plenty of shopping options too from mega malls like Gurnee Mills featuring 200 stores, to charming downtowns with distinctive boutiques and friendly neighborhood restaurants.
