Dude- I'm late to the game here--but the best attraction is Tank Johnson's old house..... Don't forget that Devin Hesert lives up here too, so does Robbie Gould. Besides Bears (I'm sure there are more Bears) Mike Caplan from Ch.7 lives in Gurnee.

As to attractions, Key lime Cove is OK---have to see it once.... Gurnee Mills Mall sux....Its decrepit and the towns people here avoid it like the plague. Gang Bangers and Sailors mixed in with unsuspecting fools who drive in from other suburbs.... or worse yet make a trip of it... HA HA. Its pretty much the consensus up here that Gurnee Mills is a dinosaur and its better to be pro-active and completely re-do everything rather than wait for things to get worse. Much talk in the last election last month about changing Gurnee Mills from an outlet mall to a life-style center similar to the Streets of Woodfield....

Take some time to look at the exterior especially--and the parking lots---a complete mess.... I know its subjective---but I'm not the only one here who thinks this way... Its a dinosaur if not out right decrepit----but if you love it---god bless- Gurnee residents don't pay property tax to the village of gurnee---thanks to the mall.... Happy shopping!

Calling most of Detroit "decrepit" would make sense. But calling Gurnee Mills "decrepit"? Cmon. Sure some areas of parking lots could use repair (gee, thats surprising in Chicagoland, eh?), but the mall itself is NOT "decrepit". Not by any sense of the word.
