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.
