Illinois' Chain of Lakes-- Part 3: An Example of Enjoying It

People often ask me why we don't usually go away for vacation during the summer.  My answer is, "Why?"  We have a great vacation spot right here.  First there is all that boating, then, there are the bars, many of which have entertainment during the week and weekends all summer long.

Plus, most every town in the area has at least one festival if not more.

Woodstock has weekly Wednesday night music outside in the gazebo as does Lake Villa and Lindenhurst.  Crystal Lake has weekly bands on Tuesdays and Antioch and McHenry on Thursdays.  Every town has 4th of July parties and Antioch runs a four-day Taste of Summer and McHenry a ten-day Fiesta Days.

There are few things finer than going out to eat, having some cocktails and sitting outside and listening to a goof band during the summer.
