Evanston, 11 miles north of the Loop, is one of the most diverse communities on the North Shore. The community features a lakeside location, convenient shopping and great proximity and access to Chicago.

Evanston residents flock to Lake Michigan and watch the sunrise, spend the day in the parks and wander through the downtown and neighborhood stores.

Evanston has preserved much of its historical charm through such significant buildings as the Gross Point Lighthouse and the Charles Gates Dawes House. The village is home to numerous cultural outlets which include a central library with two branches, numerous theater groups, a symphony orchestra, five museums and a number of art galleries and centers. Northwestern University adds to the cultural mix of the community. Evanston boasts 263 acres of parks, five public beaches, five community centers, an educational ecology center, indoor ice rink, a golf course, tennis courts and a wide range of classes and programs.

Evanston is a 30 minute short trip by car or train to downtown Chicago. Three Metra train stations and six CTA elevated tracks serve Evanston. The Edens Expressway (I-94) is just west of town, and drive time to the Loop is 40 minutes.  Stats
