When summer temperatures spike and you need a way to cool off, Barefoot Bay is a fun way to do just that. Spend a few hours playing in the pool, zipping down the numerous water slides, relaxing in the lazy river, and more. Because the main pool is zero depth, even the smallest children can play and have fun. Grab refreshments and sit in the sun or take refuge in the many shaded areas of the water park.
Steeple Chase Golf Club
If you like spending time out on the fairways and greens, shaving strokes off your game, many Mundelein residents love Steeple Chase. The village-owned course that features gentle rolling hills, picturesque water traps, challenging layouts, and impressive putting greens. It’s constantly mentioned as one of the best public courses in Illinois. Even if you’re not a golfer, some people visit the clubhouse just to enjoy the onsite bar and grill, which serves breakfast and lunch, plus a number of delightful drinks. Relax and soak in the surrounding beauty of the course while enjoying your meal.
Fremont Public Library

University of Saint Mary of the Lake
Many Mundelein residents like to visit this seminary and school of theology, which is managed by the Archdiocese of Chicago, thanks to the well-maintained buildings and grounds.
