The things I like most about my neighborhood are the great schools. Its a very good neighborhood for kids giving thr

I like to live near a cafe because I always want to go for a cup of coffee after work because it's become my daily routine

What I find unique about my neighborhood is that we setup a ice rink for the children during winter to play on. My favorite local business would be Yangs bar and grill. My favorite place to go with family and friends is to Gurnee mills mall.

there are at least 4 stores and the bus stop are very nothing unique no bars no shops near by I do not any freinds

My neighborhood had multiple blocks and there are a lot of kids. There are also a few parks nearby. I love riding my bike to the parks.

In addition to great apartments, Waukegan has 720 acres of parks featuring hiking paths, a bird sanctuary, a nature preserve, a greenhouse and an outdoor swimming pool.

Have a romantic picnic in the park with your significant other or take the kids to one of the many playgrounds in the area. For older kids, there's even a skate park and a BMX track.

If golf is your recreation of choice, consider an apartment near two of Waukegan's popular golf courses. Bonnie Brook is a picturesque, well-maintained, beautifully landscaped 18-hole course located in the central part of the city.

There's also a clubhouse with a bar, grill and patio where you can enjoy a cold drink and a snack after a hard day of competition.
