Chicago, Illinois

The Genesee Theatre is located in Waukegan, Illinois, just outside of Chicago which is one of the most bustling cities in the United States and people in the Windy City never face a shortage of things to do. Sports fans can watch the Chicago Bulls of the NBA, the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL, the Chicago Bears of the NFL, or MLB's White Sox or Cubs. Additionally there are several local colleges who have top tier NCAA match ups throughout the year. Of course, Chicago is also known for its vibrant art scene whether it is plays and musicals at theaters like the Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre or the burgeoning music scene that produces world class jazz, hip hop, and alternative rock. Each summer major rock festivals Lollapalooza and Pitchfork Music Festival are held in the Windy City, and there are plenty of museums and public works of art to enjoy including the Chicago Picasso. Shopping on State Street and the Magnificent Mile offers visitors the chance to buy upscale clothes and other items before heading home.
