For Chicagoans, lazy days at the pool or the water park are complete for the season. A chill is in the air and the leaves are falling, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until next year to take a dip in the pool and enjoy a tropical atmosphere.
On a visit to Key Lime Cove in Gurnee, Illinois, you’re transported to Key West, where the lobby has the feel of DuVal Street and the tropical vibe follows you wherever you go. The 414-room facility has seven different room configurations for groups of all sizes all with the lively, colorful décor and floral bedding.
Your room includes free passes to the water park for both the day of arrival and day of departure, so you can enjoy two full days of fun in the water. The 65,000 square-foot water park includes five water slides, an interactive play structure, a lazy river, kiddie pool area, adults only spa and wave pool.
Just outside the water park is an 8,000 square-foot arcade. Arts and craft stations will provide fun for the kids and several shops can be found with everything from swimwear to fudge to jewelry. Moms won’t want to miss the Paradise Mist Spa for a massage, nail or skin treatment. Grab a bite at one of several eateries in the resort, which include favorites like pizza and hot dogs and more exotic seafood specialties.
