Chicago, Illinois, is one of the world's great cities and, as a result of its thriving arts scene and robust economy, many people look for homes for rent in the area. While residents tend to be very proud of their home and all that Chicago has to offer, you don't need skyscrapers and flashing lights to fall in love with a city. In fact, many people who move to the area end up renting a home in Waukegan, Illinois, and become enamored with this cozy town. As the famous American comedian and Waukegan resident Jack Benny once said, "I was born in Waukegan -- how can you follow that?"
Likewise, many residents who rent a Waukegan home become affectionately tied to their town, which retains much of the charm of Jack Benny's time there. The Genesee theater, which debuted Benny's 1939 movie Man about Town, continues to excite residents in Waukegan with its list of performances. In fact, in 2005, Ringo Starr and his band the Roundheads performed a concert there for an episode of the television program Soundstage.
Renters of Waukegan homes who are out for the evening have quite a few options for nightlife right in their community. A scattering of bars and pubs dot the city, including the popular watering holes Booner's Place, Club 18, and the Frolic Lounge. With these treats and a long list of fine restaurants, the area exudes an urban feel, even if it is a few miles north of Chicago.
