Let the ride take you...

Volo PondStart your day with beauty and wonder at Volo Bog State Natural Area, where each season offers a new experience. Watch the orchids appear in the spring and see the beautiful colors of fall in the autumn months. Observe great blue and green herons, beavers, white-tailed deer and indigenous plant life year round at state's only quaking bog with an open water center. For a less active trip, the Visitor Center offers history and hands on activities.

Antioch ShuttleContinue on to Port of Blarney in Antioch where a shuttle boat will bring you on a tour of the beautiful Chain O'Lakes, rich in gangster history and folklore. Once famous for water lily boat tours, they are making a comeback! See Grass, Nippersink and Fox Lakes as well as Minneola Bay.

Have a very casual lunch on the newly renovated Port of Blarney. Your package includes a personal tour guide, boat tour and lunch. Note: tours are done on Wednesday - Friday from late May thru early September (weather permitting).

Next is Wine! a tour of Vigneto del Bino, Lake County's second winery discovers the secrets of Illinois wine making. A tour of the family vineyard and tasting of six of their wines is perfect for a group of about 35 people.

VoloBrowse along the main street of Antioch's Historic Downtown area for unique shops including a fine arts gallery, chocolate shop, antiques, a home decor store, a famous china outlet store and more! A local historian can provide a talk on how Antioch was one of the Chain's hotspots during Prohibition.

Dinner at David's Bistro will give everyone a chance to relax and discuss their discoveries on Main Street. Check into the nearby Best Western Plus, relax in the lounge while the staff will take care of everything.

Complete your day in the Chain O' Lakes Area of Lake County by seeing local actors in a favorite play or musical, a downtown concert or experiencing one of their many festivals or seasonal craft fairs.

Next day add-on gangster experience: Tommy Gun's Garage in Chicago. Any way you arrange it - your group will be hooked!
