"Living by the Lake"

Evanston is my new home town. Though many residents have lived there entire lives here, many others like me are new to this city and find Evanston a welcoming community that values both excellence and equity. Living by the lake provides a high quality of life. Many luxury apartment buildings have been recently built within walking distance of the Metra and CTA stops. Homeowners in Evanston take very good care of their property (for the most part) which makes this a good place to invest your housing dollar. Evanston schools are strong. Downtown Evanston, the Main/Dempster district, and "Top 10" Central Street offer unique shopping and dining experiences. With Chicago as your neighbor to the South, Evanston is perhaps the best suburb around.
Pros
  • Lighthouse Beach!
  • Walkable Downtown Evanston
  • Northwestern University
Cons
  • Taxes & Fees
  • Highway access limited
