Strolling Down Christmas Tree Lane and Meeting With the Big Guy

One of the great pleasures of this time of year is seeing all the lights and decorations in downtown Crystal Lake. Walking past store windows that have been decorated and lampposts strung with garland and lights almost transports you to a different point in time. As an extra special bonus, it was Sip-n-Shop, so the street corners were also lined with mason jar luminarias.

In addition to just being downtown during this time of year, there are two extra specials events put on by the Downtown Crystal Lake organization.

My hope for McHenry Life is to create a resource and destination for the residents and businesses of McHenry County alike. A place where residents can discover new places to explore, fun events and ways to spend time, and then share those experiences with others. A place where businesses can connect with existing and potential customers, and not simply market their businesses, but share their own unique stories.
