PM&L Theatre

Palette, Masque and Lyre Inc (PM&L Theatre) has been a staple of entertainment in downtown Antioch for six decades. Formed in 1960, our community theatre has grown from its humble beginnings in a converted vaudeville venue to a modern facility built to delight our audiences of all ages. PM&L runs a full season of plays, musicals and comedies each year drawn from our rich tradition while always introducing fresh contemporary and modern shows. In 2015 we acquired the building next door in order to convert it to Tribute Hall, a fresh new lounge and concessions area. We're proud to be part of the Antioch and Lake County community and invite you to visit and see the enjoyment of live entertainment for yourself. Listed hours are for our box office only, performances are on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

I have lived in Antioch 21 years and I finally made it to the PM&L theater! We caught To Kill A Mockingbird and while that story is a bit dry for me (the book was a tough read for me) the experience was solid good. The theater is super-small and "skinny"- I counted 100 seats on the floor and I'm guessing there are maybe 20 seats in the balcony. But the place was renovated several years ago and it is a very nice facility. There is also a little are adjacent in which you can have a drink and/or snack before the show or at intermission. Next I'll try a musical there. Nice.

60 to Escape

The rules here are so simple that they're laid out right in the business's name: 60 to Escape. Small groups of friends, family members, or coworkers are locked in a room, where they have only an hour to use problem-solving skills and teamwork to escape. Players can select from a variety of scenarios to challenge themselves with.

If you are into riddles and mind puzzles this is the place.The story line is mind challenging and entertaining. This is no video game. My wife and I did well together and completed 80% of the puzzle. We would have beat the clock if we had more people. Best for two or more couples.

Wilmot Mountain

Currently closed for Winter Operations. Please check out website for summer events. Since 1938, Wilmot Mountain has enchanted families as one of the Midwest’s premier Winter destinations for snowsport activities. Just a short drive away from Chicago and Milwaukee, they have made skiing, snowboarding, and tubing an easy, accessible, affordable and fun trip for the whole family. With the recent Vail Purchase, Wilmot Mountain is undergoing a $13.2 million renovation. This renovation includes new lifts, a base area transformation, an expanded state-of-the-art snowmaking system, a new kid's ski and snowboard school with an enhanced beginner's area, and a new terrain park with high speed rope tow. Having converted thousands of first-timers into lifelong skiers and riders, and now with the opportunity to take that passion to Vail Resorts’ iconic western mountains, Wilmot Mountain is truly the place where Epic begins.

Good ski spot close to Chicago.

-Quick (about hour) drive from downtown Chicago.
-Ski runs are short, but fun and interesting. There are some good areas for jumps and tricks as well.
-Rental equipment was a bit old and could use an update. The rental process is also kind of weird. They just tell you to pick out your own boots and you leave them when you’re done—nobody confirms that they’re returned.
-The food at the cafeteria was surprisingly good—pizza was delicious.
-There are a couple bars and they had good live music while we were there.
-All the staff were friendly.

Will definitely go back next time I want a quick ski trip in the area.

I'm not sure why, but every time that we get near the Wisconsin/Illinois border, I am told that we have to stop at Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets. I mean - how much can someone buy?? It is located on the east side of I-94 and has very easy access on and off the highway. There is plenty of parking. I have found that the best thing to do is to just drive slowly around the outdoor mall and you'll find a store that you'll like.

The Tempel Lipizzans

Lipizzaner Stallions have been enchanting audiences for 450 years. Witness art and history come to life at one of our Matinee or Evening Performances or during a Behind-The-Scenes Tour (available by appointment only). From the playful bounding of new foals to the strong, precise jumps of our stallions, the whole family will be captivated by the strength, beauty, and intelligence of these horses. Each performance, to music, is a study in classical horsemanship which has been practiced in Europe since the 16th century; the Lipizzaners have been performing at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria since the 1500’s. There are very few places in the United States where such an art can be observed. We offer a taste of Vienna, Austria right in your back yard. Performances begin mid June and run through mid September.

I thought I knew what to expect but actually being there and witnessing the artistry of the horses and riders is awesome.

We went Sunday right at ten am to go apple picking. There was only five rows (each only approximately half picked already) and were able to pick two varieties of apples- honey crisp and gala. The honey crisp were extremely large but very tasty. The gala were reasonable size but not ripe yet. It took us ten minutes to fill our two bags (one small one large). It was rather disappointing for our "day at the orchard". We put the apples in the car and decided to check out the activities area, however we were very disappointed that it was 15$ per person, even adults who wouldn't be "riding" anything. It seemed extremely steep and we chose to just stay in the free area (fun teeter tatter) and have a lemonade and cheese curds (both very good!) We then headed to the market were we tried a few things. We found the zucchini bread to be very dry when we got home. I will choose other apple orchards in the future this did not deliver the apple picking experience we were looking for and the activities area was very expensive. We were also disappointed by the number of people who were smoking on the grounds after it being marked a smoke free environment.

If you are looking to get into diving or are already a diver and looking for good products and value stop and see Rick. He is the owner and even though I am just a customer they all treat you as you are family. They are all very friendly and open about giving advise, not on what is hot at the moment but true and tried experience.
