Crystal Lake is part of Chicago's metropolitan area, though it takes about 45 minutes to travel between the two cities. The city's population is about 40,000. Buildings from its founding in the 1800s remain, adding lovely historical scenery to the area. It is part of McHenry County, and it publishes the county's only newspaper, the Northwest Herald. Crystal Lake has plenty of public parks and outdoor spaces, some of which include fields, picnic areas, minigolf courses, and playgrounds. More from this guide...
