As one of the North Shore s most picturesque communities, Evanston is a true rival to all others within the Chicago-land area. It is not only a commuter suburb, but a wonderful place to live with plenty of professional opportunities. Since its founding, Evanston has maintained a unique character with its numerous historic buildings, abundance of greenery, and far less populated access to Lake Michigan. Well-connected public transportation makes it possible to explore the city s many commercial districts, which are lined with restaurants and eclectic boutiques. Bookworms will greatly appreciate living in proximity to one of the best national universities, along with having access to the city s three public libraries. Additionally, cultural aficionados would love visiting one of several local museums on the weekends. Due to Evanston s continuous commitment to environmental conservation and sustainability, lucky residents can enjoy their harmonious surroundings on a daily basis.
