Gurnee Mills Mall has to be the largest mall in the Chicagoland area. It's huge and that means miles of walking, so wear your comfortable shoes. Or better yet, buy a new pair. The mall features lots of discount pricing, and you can find just about anything here. Don't miss some of the stores just outside the mall, too. Some big box stores got smart and moved just across the street. Be prepared for bus loads of people, literally. I usually try to eat outside the mall to avoid the food courts that are ubiquitous here. Most restaurants inside the mall have long wait times, but you can always have a look around while you wait. That's the problem!
