  • 1. Gurnee

    Gurnee is a town on the outskirts of the city of Waukegan. Part of the wider Chicago Metropolitan Area, the town is popular with vacationers, in part because of local attractions Gurnee Mills Mall and Six Flags Great America.

  • 2. Aurora

    Aurora is a suburb of Chicago that possesses historic charm and character. Officially a city in its own right, Aurora is known locally as the “City of Lights” because it was the first city in the region to boast its own all-electric street lighting. This quaint town is largely residential, but it has a bustling downtown that features locally-owned stores and major retail brand names. Most of the city’s nightlife is located around The Hollywood Casino in the dockside area.

The town is also famous for its many water-based activities, which include jet-skiing, tubing, and pleasure boating.
