  1. The events seem to revolve in most part around children and families and although that is nice, there is not a lot for single adults. is there a separate web site for those events?

    • Thank you for your comment Barbara. Yes our whole site is for families and children. You can try the Visit Lake County Site, Eventbrite, or Metromix for adult only events.
