Moving to Waukegan—Business Development

Located in the northeast corner of Illinois on the shore of Lake Michigan, Waukegan lies near the border of Wisconsin and only 40 miles north of Chicago. The city population is about 95,000, and the Waukegan area is an appealing place to call home for multiple reasons.

The lakefront and downtown areas of Waukegan are currently undergoing revitalization efforts to attract new development, making it an ideal place to open or relocate your business. The scene along the lake and the historic downtown is sure to attract both local residents and tourists. The potential to rejuvenate the old or build something new ensures that developers will have options depending on individual business needs.

The Waukegan Harbor has also been recently renovated adding a new pier facility and marina. The new improved dock design and security features will please any boater – whether you want to join the Yacht Club or simply enjoy fishing and sailing.

Moving to Waukegan—Arts Friendly

Even though Chicago is a short distance away, Waukegan also offers visual and performance arts to the local community without having to travel to the big city. The Waukegan Arts Council collaborates with local businesses and provides a network between artists and organizations to support an active arts community. The monthly Art Wauk continues to generate interest from more participating artists and public viewers.

Waukegan residents also have the benefit of enjoying the Waukegan  Park District, which maintains a number of facilities on 721 acres including: two golf courses; sports and fitness centers; park areas for skating, biking, walking, and pets; picnic areas; and several playing fields for sports activities. This makes it a great place for both kids and adults to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
