Today kicks off one of my most favorite summer activities, Out to Lunch Libertyville!
Out to Lunch Libertyville is like a city wide picnic/block party. Held in Cook Park every Friday throughout the summer it’s the perfect place to meet friends for a playdate or hang out with your own kids.
The park is lined with local restaurants selling everything from hotdogs to salads. In addition to the food there is a lice band every week and the occasional community group with tables. We like to sit near the playground and the kids alternate form running and dancing around the rose bushes and playing on the playground.
Since all the food vendors are actual restaurants from Libertyville the prices vary and if you have a picky eater can be a challenge. We occasionally bring our own picnic lunch, enjoy the atmosphere, and buy ice cream afterwards.
