Getting to know Grayslake, Illinois

Grayslake IL is located approximately 40 miles to the north of Chicago. Lake Michigan is about 15 miles to the east and there is less than 15 miles between it and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Nestled between the third largest city in the United States and the largest city in Wisconsin, Grayslake has access to many amenities that small communities usually lack.

Grayslake Illinois has a population of less than 21,000 people (as of 2010). It is a village bound by larger cities but has retained its own character and appeal. Grayslake manages to keep its small town charm within sight of the skyscrapers of Chicago.

History of Grayslake

Grayslake sits on the former property of William M. Gray, a farmer that settled in the area for five years in the mid-1800s before moving on to Waukegan. A railroad line was built during the 1880s and a station was built near Gray’s former home. The name stuck and the village was incorporated in 1895.

Grays Lake, from where the village gets its name, is an 80-acre lake that sits within the village limits. Small and shallow, the lake supports largemouth bass and northern pike among other species of fish. Recreational fishing in the lake is allowed, but motorized watercrafts are not. Swimming during the summer and ice skating during the winter are also popular.

Things to do in Grayslake IL

Grayslake has a number of annual festivals during the spring and summer, but most locals “go to town” for the greater entertainment options. With downtown Chicago being less than an hour away, fine dining and shopping plus cultural events and museums are within a short distance for everyone.

During the summer, boating on Lake Michigan is a very popular activity. Fishing, sailing and power boating are close at hand for all the residents of this quaint village.
