Peaceful pools and winding channels make the Skokie Lagoons a prime destination for boating and fishing.

Doing both would be a 2-hour trip.

Join us on this trip to experience Southwestern charm, adobe-style architecture, a special historic place where they use chiles as decorations.

Few of you skiers have ever been here and most likely if you are a boarder you have never been here (they just allowed boarders a couple of years ago).
