About Little McHenry County

Little McHenry County is for parents, grandparents, caregivers, families, anyone who is looking for:

Where to Play in McHenry County

Where to Shop in McHenry County

Where to Eat in McHenry County

Basically people who want to do their living, where they live. 

Little Trike Media, Inc. has been running the local source for Lake County families, Little Lake County, since 2010. Due the popular demand (and frequent requests) from our McHenry County friends Little McHenry County is born.

Think of us as a digital magazine written by parents, for parents about everything McHenry County. Whether you’re looking for a fun weekend activity with your family, a place to take your toddler when it rains, or a preschool to enroll your child in the Fall, McHenry County parents can turn to Little McHenry County for the answers.

Our primary goal is to build local connections. We connect…

  • Parents with their children by informing them of events and activities where they can spend quality time together.
  • Parents with other parents through our active and popular Facebook page, a digital coffee klatsch for modern-day parents to share their thoughts, ideas, and advice with one another.
  • Parents with local, regional and national businesses that serve their family’s diverse needs.

We have built an honest dialogue with our readers since 2010 and they trust us for where-to-go, what-to-do, and who-to-see in their town, no matter is that town is Lakewood or Woodstock.

Our Story

I founded Little Lake County in 2010. A Lake County transplant, mother of two small children, and freelance writer, I was frustrated on how difficult it was to find ways to entertain my children. I knew the information was out there, but could only find it through luck and word-of-mouth.

I gathered together a small crew of five moms and Little Lake County was born. Our mission then is the same as it is today, to connect Lake & McHenry County parents with the family-friendly events, venues, products, and services that meet their needs. Our calendar is a place to have events you can go to today, no registration needed and a family of 4 can do for $50 or less.

Years later, I  now have four children, over twenty writers, and thousands of loyal and active readers. McHenry County is our second site and since we know that the borders blur in many areas we will be sharing social pages and writers for the two sites.

Our writers are all “real-life” Moms and Dads who are passionate about what Lake & McHenry County has to offer families.

We have a small, dedicated Editorial Staff made up of work-at-home moms trying to fit the full-time job of running Little Lake County in between school drop-offs, soccer practice, changing diapers, cooking dinner, and kissing boo boo’s. Sometimes, we might even work out. If you are trying to reach us, please be patient. At Little Trike Media, Inc., family always comes first.

The best way to get to know us, is to hang with us! So subscribe, like us, and join us as we explore our towns with our little ones.
