I personally LOVE the beach and each year we take a family trip to this beach. A friend asked for the information and now their family is vacationing there too. We are there at different times, so I was ecstatic to get to come visit them and take their family pictures. This beach destination just outside of Chicago gives you the feeling of being away from to relax and enjoy your family and has a beautiful beach and boardwalk area. Truly a great photo spot and what a great vacation memory to have all the time when it hangs in your home!
