About Winthrop Harbor
Situated along the shores of Lake Michigan, Winthrop Harbor is a small community with a big marina. In fact, its North Point Marina is the largest on the Great Lakes, bringing nearly a million visitors to the area each year.
Located near the Illinois border, residents enjoy a wealth of recreational activities among a lush natural setting. Winthrop Harbor has a 20,000-square-foot recreation center that includes a park with a gazebo, baseball fields, a skate park, and tennis and basketball courts. The charming town also features 1,500 boat slips, tranquil public beaches, fishing charters, delicious restaurants, and the Winthrop Harbor Yacht Club.
A Metra train station on the Union Pacific North Line provides direct access to downtown Chicago’s Ogilvie Transportation Center.
