Skokie

Skokie: A Brief History

Named after the First Nations word for "marsh," Skokie is a small city located in Cook County just outside of Chicago. For many years, Skokie was known as "The World's Largest Village," emphasizing that it had all the benefits of city life while remaining a "good old-fashioned Midwest values" town. Named one of the best cities to live in according to Livability.com, Skokie is also best known for its Chicago-style bungalows built in the early 1920s.

The Benefits of Living in Skokie

Living in Skokie has its benefits. For example:

  • Proximity: It's located just 16 miles to the northwest of Chicago, making it the perfect place to call home for people who work in the city but want to live in the suburbs for the benefit of their family.
  • Affordability: While there is certainly no shortage of luxury 2-bedroom apartments in the area, Skokie also has no shortage of affordable 2-bedroom apartments (and apartments of all sizes, for that matter), making it perfect for residents who are budget-conscious.
  • Things to Do: If you're not the kind of person who likes to sit at home all day, living in Skokie will prove to be a delightful experience for you. Whether you appreciate museums (like the Illinois Holocaust Museum), or you're an outdoors-type person (thus making the Skokie Northshore Park -- with its outdoor sculptures and countless bike paths -- go to the top of your list), or you're someone who appreciates good food and good nightlife, Skokie has all you could ever want. Best of all, if you find yourself getting bored with what's going on in Skokie, you can take a quick ride to Chicago and enjoy the many things there.

Things to Remember When Living in Skokie

If you decide that living in Skokie is right for you, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • It's very diverse. In fact, it's ranked as No. 35 on the list of most ethnically diverse places to live in Illinois.
  • Save your money so you can buy something. Only 25% of the people who live in the area are renters. But, with the median house price being about $280,000, buying a reasonable house isn't that hard to do.
  • It's pretty safe. Violent crime is nearly non-existent, and last year, no murders were reported in the area. However, property crime can happen -- and theft is the most common property crime. Be sure to secure your valuables and exercise good judgment whenever you're alone in your home.
  • Your neighbors are very smart. More than 60% of residents have some form of a college degree, with almost 20% having a master's degree or higher. This means that there will be plenty of opportunities in Skokie to expand your intellectual horizons.
