Gurnee, Illinois, a part of greater metro-Chicago, is a town of 30,000 people in Northern Illinois. Settled in the 1830s, Gurnee and its train station were named for the 14th mayor of Chicago, Walter S. Gurnee. Located in Lake County and along the Des Plaines River, Gurnee is probably best known as the home of Six Flags Great America and Gurnee Mills mall. However, it is also home to many thriving locally owned business, including Suzy’s Swirl.


The aptly named Lake Bluff area borders Lake Michigan from a blufftop perch. The 4-square-mile village is home to some 6,000 residents and a small downtown historic district, recently added to the National Register. Voted America's 4th “Happiest Sea Side Towns” by Coastal Living Magazine. 

Suzy's Swirl loves Lake Bluff for so many reasons, the most important are the wonderful people from Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Libertyville and Knollwood who visit Suzy's. We also enjoy swirling goodness with so many amazing schools and organizations locally!
