Tucked on the western shore of Lake Michigan, a trip to Waukegan places you on the far northern edge of the Chicago metropolitan area. While you'll find plenty of big city sights and activities to keep you occupied, lots of open space and preserves let you get back to nature as well. Book rental cars in Waukegan to have the best of both worlds: Linger over lunch in historic downtown and then head off to an afternoon of hiking, fishing, or snowshoeing.
Flying into Chicago O'Hare International Airport lands you just 33 miles from Waukegan hotels. Take advantage of Waukegan rental cars to explore the Windy City, Lake Michigan Shoreline, and Fox River Valley. Roll into the Volo Auto Museum 20 miles west of the city to get an up-close look at the Batmobile, meet Lightning McQueen, and marvel over a room full of Duesenbergs. Get lost in time at the Field Museum in Chicago as you browse through 4.6 billion years of history, or get hands-on with interactive exhibits at the award-winning Lake County Discovery Museum. When it's time to romp outdoors, you'll find the Illinois Beach Preserve and State Park just outside the city limits to the north. Much more than just water and sand, you'll find over 650 species of plants, ranging from cactus to wildflowers, as well as marshes, dunes, and forests to hike. Planning a winter trip to the area? More than 43 inches of snowfall each year make it a prime area for snow sports. Watch dog sledders mush their teams at the Waukegan Savanna Dog Sled Area, strap on a pair of snowshoes to hike trails at Lyons Wood Forest Preserve, or rent a snowmobile to tackle terrain at Waukegan Savanna Preserve.
