Let the ride take you...

Chocolate Lovers Trail through Lake County, IL

This tasty tour is fun for couples, girlfriend groups and anyone who loves chocolate! 

Start getting your taste buds ready with a stop at the Long Grove Confectionery Co. for their Chocolate Tour. The quality of its candy and the ability for visitors to view production at their 25,000 sq. ft. facility creates a new respect for superior chocolate makers.  Make sure you save time to shop in their retail store to purchase full-price and bulk priced candy products.  

For over 50 years, Lambs Farm has serviced the developmentally disabled by empowering them to be the most they can be. Stop by the Visitor Center, meet one of the amazing residents, take some time to shop at the pet store, thrift shop and bakery before receiving a bag of their famous butter cookies, in chocolate of course. 

Escape from the ordinary and experience the extraordinary at The Chocolate Sanctuary.  Chef Ahmed’s menu celebrates the cocoa bean in its many forms; your clients will find a variety of beautifully plated main courses, appetizers and desserts that incorporate the restaurant’s namesake ingredient.

Your next stop will be an experience in sweet science at Uniquely Sweet.  Your candy making event includes chocolate pizza, s'mores, pretzels and clusters of toffee with time to shop.  

Directly next door is Glunz Family Cellars - Lake County's first winery. While your chocolate is hardening, stop by to sample their wines and pick up some to take home!

We can assist you with evening entertainment options nearby such as the Genesee, PM&L Theatre and Citadel Theatres or Ravinia Festival.

Stay overnight at one of our fabulous hotels then shop  at Gurnee Mills.   Should you need some more chocolate yumminess to take home, there are the fabulous Frangos® at Macy’s. Your group can meet at Rainforest Café for a specialized lunch menu and end with a chocolate Volcano! 

This delicious itinerary will leave your group in a happy place as they head back home!
