Drive time from Chicago 45 minutes, Gurnee
Reason to go It's a small water park, but it's got something for everyone: Three super-scary slides for the adventurous teens and parents, along with multiple smaller slides and a lazy river. When we checked it out on a Monday afternoon, it was practically empty.
Restaurants They've got a few grill and ice cream spots, but we suggest you hop into your car instead. Within a five-minute drive, you'll hit about a dozen restaurants.
Need to know When you're done splashing around, check out the massive arcade area. Most rooms in the hotel have a microwave and a fridge.
