Lake County, Illinois Convention and Visitors Bureau - Lake County Family Fun Guide - Hidden Gems

Hidden Gems in Lake County

Off the beaten path adventures are waiting for you to explore...

Next weekend, see your favorite Hollywood cars like the Cat In the Hat car, the Scooby Doo Mystery Mobile, or the Batmobile at the Volo Auto Museum and see Disney memorabilia from your favorite animated films! After the museum, find your own adventure when you go for a hike in the Volo Bog State Natural Area.

Learning can be fun at the Dunn Museum which is currently open in their Libertyville location.

For the ultimate family weekend getaway, look no further than Lake County!
