With nearly 1,000 boat slips and its easy access to downtown Chicago, Hammond Marina has again been voted Best of the Region.
The marina, which has been in Hammond for about 20 years, features 918 slips ranging in size from 30 feet to more than 100 feet, said Bill Hill, the marina director.
The marina is 12 nautical miles from Chicago, and features a half-mile long beach with lifeguards and a 2-lane boat launch ramp. It also is home to the Hammond Yacht Club and has the Clipper Room, which can host banquets, weddings and parties.
It also has access to Horseshoe Casino and hosts an annual Venetian Night each August.
