Skokie Lagoons: Stunning Water Wonderland in the Chicago Suburbs

Skokie Lagoons: Stunning Water Wonderland in the Chicago Suburbs

Chicago's North Branch Trail Wound Us Through Breathtaking Skokie Lagoons

Skokie Lagoons provides an amazing 894-acre nature preserve featuring hiking, biking, boating, fishing, kayaking, picnicking and more. My husband and I visited Skokie Lagoons for the first time this weekend and just wow -- we should have visited much sooner! A little interesting tidbit -- Skokie Lagoons is not actually in Skokie. The preserve is on the Skokie River in Wilmette. Skokie is a little further from our home than Wilmette and would have taken a bit more planning, so I think my own not understanding the preserve's location kept us from going sooner! I am glad that we finally explored the spectacular views!
