Super small population, family friendly, and quite. Nice place to live and raise a family. Neighborhood feels safe and is still close to waukegan. gurnee and zion. Only about 45 min from Chicago and 30 min from Wisconsin. There is plenty to do and see in beach park.

The are is a very well kept place. Everyone minds their own business unless a serious emergency. They are all nice people, they are always saying hello to everybody that lives in the street.

The city of waukegan and surrounding areas have beautified their cities . We have a beautiful lakefronts with local marinas, hotels and restaurants and many shopping malls, with high quality stores, Gurnee Mills, Sixflags , keylime cove waterpark /hotel. The waukegan municiple band which plays every Tuesday evening. and many festivals and events. Nostalgia days, Harbors days, rib fests, and carnivals . The summer in this area can be a busy place if you want to enjoy it all.
