Located Southwest of Chicago, Lockport is a bustling city in Will County, Illinois. With a fair share of trails and restaurants in the immediate area, as well as being incredibly convenient to Chicago, neither you nor your dog will want for things to do. 

One point of interest is the magnificent Centennial Trail, a trail with multiple uses that was repurposed from a historic canal in the heart of Lockport. Bring your dog out on a sunny day and enjoy the crisp and cool air in beautiful Illinois. Your magnificent mutt will enjoy the time at their master’s side, and the both of you can get plenty of good exercise walking the numerous trails. Be sure to bring plenty of snacks, both for you and your pup, as well as fresh drinking water and waste bags to keep the trail nice and clean. 

Once you and Fido are done with your trek, explore the rest of beautiful Lockport, enjoy a quick bite to eat, or make your way to Chicago for some of the more popular attractions in the area. Lockport may be very near Chicago, but it’s a nice reprieve from the bustle of the massive and busy city.
