Port-Barrington is a lovely village located 38 miles northwest of the Chicago Loop. It was originally developed as a tourist spot in 1925 for residents to enjoy fishing and other water sports. Formerly known as the Fox River Valley Gardens, it is bordered on the West by the Fox River, including a series of man-made channels known as the Nielsen Channels, which are noted as one of the best fishing spots in the entire Chain-0-Lakes region. Village residents can use a free boat launch located on Park Drive in Port Barrington. Other recreational activities in the area include hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking and snowmobiling. The Fox River Forest Preserve lies within the village of Port Barrington. Here you can stroll along a two-mile trail through peaceful woodlands, fish on the banks of the river, launch a boat or enjoy picnicking on scenic grassy areas. The 169-slip marina in the Fox River Forest Preserve offers 20, 25 and 30-foot slips, and includes a four-lane launch for boats and personal watercraft. Indoor dry storage is also available.

Port Barrington Weather & Climate

Northeast Illinois , near Lake Michigan, lies midway between the Continental Divide and the Atlantic Ocean. The climate is typically continental with cold winters, warm summers, and frequent short fluctuations in temperature, humidity, cloudiness and wind direction. Lake Michigan greatly influences the climate of northeastern Illinois. The large thermal mass of the lake tends to moderate temperatures, causing cooler summers and warmer winters. Cool lake breezes provide relief from summer heat and the lake also tends to increase cloudiness and suppress summer precipitation. Winter precipitation is enhanced by lake-effect snows that occur when winds blow from the north or northeast. These winds allow air to pass over the relatively warm lake, boosting storm system energy and water content, leading to increased snowfall.
