Village of Wauconda

Wauconda, Illinois isn't your average suburban destination. This village blends small-town charm with a chill vibe that's anything but square. Picture this: days spent boating on Bangs Lake, wandering through contemporary and vintage boutiques on Main Street, eating world-class eats complemented by delectable craft suds at Lindy's Landing, SLYCE Coal-fired Pizza, The Side Lot or JJ Twigs or exploring the scenic and National Natural Landmark Lakewood Forest Preserve on bike or foot. By night, the energy shifts. Friendly faces toast a drink as the sun sets over the water. Wauconda has a deep history, but its spirit is youthful. It's a place where you can ditch the suit and tie, embrace your inner adventurer and discover a side of Illinois that's as laid-back as it is exciting. So, bid farewell to the city lights and cruise on over to Wauconda. It's the perfect spot to unwind, recharge and find your own unique rhythm .
