Last week I got the opportunity to tour the Keylime Cove Resort in Gurnee for the first time. I was extremely impressed with all the amenities the resort had and I left wishing the resort had been around when I was a kid.
Growing up my family would often take an annual trip to the Wisconsin Dells in the winter to stay in one of the various indoor water park resorts there. As much as I enjoyed our family trips to Wisconsin Dells when I was younger, I would have rather skipped out on the long drive to stay at Key Lime Cove, which is a short twenty minute drive from my house and right next to Six Flags Great America!
The atmosphere of the resort is inspired by the Florida Keys. The bright tropical colors and island themed shops and restaurants instantly transported me to a warm sunny paradise. With a full service spa, water park, arcade, and plenty of dining and shopping options there is something for the whole family to enjoy.
The 65,000 square foot indoor Lost Paradise Waterpark includes a lazy river, thrilling water slides, lagoon hot tub, kiddie pool and water playground! During my tour I had a delicious lunch at the Crazy Toucan Bar and Grill. The menu included a variety of island inspired dishes. The prices were affordable and the food was excellent! I cant wait to book a weekend stay at Key Lime Cove so I can take advantage of all the amenities this tropical resort has to offer right here in Lake County!
