I have found living in Gages Lake to be a relatively quiet suburb not too far from an amusement park, a mall and Chicago. Our household size is somewhat typical with an average three residents: myself, my wife and our daughter who attends Gages Lake High School. We live in a condominium, and our combined income compares to the median of $97,000.00.
Gages Lake has a population of about 11,000 residents. It is considered a township in Lake County. Condos or lakefront cottages are more permanent places of residence.
Housing prices, unemployment and high school graduation rates are generally more favorable compared to those of the state overall. The best areas for shopping in Gages Lake are in nearby Gurney. Our winters are harsh as is much of the Midwest. However, I like our summer temperatures, which range near 70 degrees F.
Gages Lake has restrictions in place for non-residents and caters to kayaking or canoe enthusiasts for example. Personal transportation is a necessity.
