Chocolate Lovers Trail through Lake County, IL
Start getting your taste buds ready with a stop at the Long Grove Confectionery Co. for their amazing retail store to purchase full-price and bulk priced candy products. Just one bite proves why they are an Illinois Made award winner.
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. The 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.
Ma & Pa’s Candy in Long Grove now has a candy making room large enough for about 18 people. Participate in dipping and cotton candy making that everyone can bring home what they made! If your group is larger, send them shopping over to Broken Bridge Treats as they carry Morkes Chocolates.
Interested in more shopping vs. making, then visit Uniquely Sweet in Grayslake. Their signature toffee is the most popular in the area.
Directly next door is Glunz Family Cellars - Lake County's first winery. 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. 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!
