Fall Color Tour

The fall color tour will happen on October 21. I plan to have everyone meet at the Grosse Point lighthouse (2536 Sheridan road) in Evanston. Then we will drive north on Sheridan road through some winding roads lined with trees, mansions, and forest preserves. I have some ideas about where the end point could be. It could end at Ft Sheridan, which is now a forest preserve with beautiful bluffs and rocky shorelines. We could continue further north to North Chicago, Winthrop Harbor or Waukegan, but most of the decent eateries seem to be in Kenosha Wisconsin. In Kenosha is a Cracker Barrel (a safe bet) and a steak house and a place described as European both of which I will check out ahead of time. Further North in Racine is a pub by the name of Shillings that received decent reviews.
Closer to Waukegan, in Libertyville is a brewpub by the name of Mickey Finn's brewery that seems good. I will check up on that too. What I need from everyone is roughly how much time they would be willing to spend driving their cars so I know how far to plan for. Grosse Point to Ft Sheridan is 13.2 miles or 42 minutes. The trip from the lighthouse to Kenosha would be 43 miles or 108 minutes and Waukegan is somewhere in between. You can contact me at, or look me up in the directory.
