Long before the sprawling Fashion Outlets of Chicago arrived near O'Hare Airport there was Gurnee Mills. It's 45 miles north of Chicago and offers something for everyone--at discounted prices as well as at full-price. For the kids, attractions include the Reptile Zoo; 60 to Escape, Escape Games; Tilt Studio; Rainforest Cafe; Disney Store; Rink Side Sports; and cineplex. And of course, there are more than 200 outlet stores for the grownups. There are also a number of fast-casual and sit-down restaurants. Gurnee Mills Outlet Mall is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Chicagoland.

The mall offers many amenities including: accessible restrooms, entrances, and parking, a children's play area, a nursing mother's lounge, strollers, and wheelchairs.
