      Its sad, because Fox Lake could be a very pretty area but it's just not a desirable place to live, unless you are a boater. Even then it's still not the greatest area to live in. Run down buildings, shady grass roots politics and there are way too many bars, even though the number is less than it used to be. Not much in the way of good restaurants, mostly just fast food. The schools are mediocre at best. There are better places to live in the area.

      I love living in Fox Lake and wouldn't even consider living anywhere else! As one of the suburbs of Chicago, you're got the feel of big city living here without actually being in the big city itself!

      The employment market is exploding, there are plenty of beautiful homes readily available for purchase and the school district is A+. There lots of opportunity for shopping whether you are looking for the high end name brands, knock off's or something truly unique.

      The night life in Fox Lake is a flurry of action with clubs to dance, festivals, theaters with live performances, and ballgames.

      Some of the other activities or places to visit here include the Volvo Auto Museum, Wilmot Mountain which is an old-school skiing attraction, and a host of lakes for fishing, state parks for exploring and hiking, and the forest preserve and wildlife area. Fox Lake also has several different family friendly parks with all kinds of equipment for the kids to enjoy!
