<1>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for North Chicago.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- North Chicago) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for North Chicago. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from North ChicagoOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in North Chicago. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.3251, Longitude: -87.8467

<5>If you're interested in how the shape of Illinois' counties, including Lake, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<6>When we are planning a trip (for example, to North Chicago), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
