Known as the “City of Progress, Waukegan is located on the shores of Lake Michigan. Waukegan offers year-round special events and an emphasis on the arts. The Marriott Theatre stages Broadway-caliber versions all year round. Enjoy outdoor music festivals with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and step into history on the streets of downtown with unique finds and charm of a small-town feel. Waukegan is your lakefront destination for arts, culture, and recreation.


The city has plans for the redevelopment of the lakefront. The first step of the revitalization effort, the opening of the Genesee Theatre, has been completed as well as many new restaurants and buildings have been renovated. The city has made substantial investments in pedestrian areas and other infrastructure.
