Military Reunions
Plan unforgettable military reunions in Lake County...

When planning a reunion for your fellow veterans, why not choose the home of the largest naval training center? Lake County and Naval Station Great Lakes have welcomed the men and women of our Armed Forces for nearly a century. Centrally located between Chicago and Milwaukee and 30 minutes from O'Hare airport, it's convenient and accessible for guests from near and far. While you're here, take a tour of the base and Great Lakes Naval Museum, have lunch at the Port O' Call overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan and even attend a graduation ceremony.

Around the county you can enjoy activities and attractions of all sorts from theater performances to world-class attractions and gracious garden walks. And make sure to stop by the Russell Military Museum and see the rare collection of over 300 military vehicles and weaponry or check out the Combat Zone Exhibit and classic cars at Volo Auto Museum. You could also tour Fort Sheridan or take the group to downtown Chicago to see the sights and tour the U-505 German Submarine at the Museum of Science and Industry. Then cap off each evening with a delicious dinner full of great conversation with lifelong friends.
