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.

The People’s Family Fun Center in Waukegan is a 43,000 sq. ft. entertainment haven with over 150 arcade games, a food court and a 12 ft. movie screen. Enjoy glow in the dark mini golfing at their indoor 18-hole course. Learning can be fun with the Lake County Discovery Museum which is currently closed, but reopening in late 2017 at the new Libertyville location. Get crafty at Artist at Heart in Libertyville. Paint a one of a kind masterpiece for the perfect gift or keepsake from a great day spent with your family.

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