Rising over the quarries that built local landmarks, including the historic Chicago Water Tower, is a new must-visit destination, The Forge: Lemont Quarries. Opening July 17, there’s been a lot of news coverage in the past week and we wanted to share our favorite quotes from Forge founders Jeremie Bacon and Chris Gladwin:

Lemont is perfectly situated in what is the men and women’s outdoor mecca of Chicagoland

Our goal is to overwhelm your senses

If you bike, canoe, kayak, if you run or do trail walking, you know this area, and there’s a good chance you’ve been through Lemont. We’re right in the middle of this.

The view from up there, looking back across the quarry, is downtown.

Downtown Chicago? Or Downtown Lemont!
