If you're looking for a place where you can live a healthy, balanced life, Waukegan is a great city for your next apartment.
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. You can also play a game of baseball, tennis or soccer at one of the many local facilities. 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. Some of the many natural features of Bonnie Brook include lakes, tree-lined fairways, wide-open greens and the Waukegan River, which flows throughout most of the course. 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.
For a shorter course, look north of Waukegan in Beach Park to Greenshire Golf Course. It's a well-groomed, par-27 course with a course length of 1,265 yards and hole lengths ranging from 100 to 210 yards. It's a dream for any golfer working on his short game skills. You can finish a round in less than 2 hours, making it possible to get in a game after work on long, summer days. Or, you can play on the weekends and still have time for those errands around Waukegan or those chores around the apartment.
If you like to hit the gym, look for an apartment with a fitness center or near Waukegan's Field House Sports and Fitness Center at Hinkston Park.

They even have a child center, so there's no excuse for not exercising.
Your Waukegan apartment won't be far from cultural attractions either, so some time at the Bowen Heritage Circle/Waukegan History Museum. Or, enjoy performances in music, theatre, opera, dance and more at the Jack Benny Center for the Arts, the Schornick Theatre or the Visual Arts Center.
