Illinois The Land Of Lincoln And So Much More

Came across this great article touting how great it is to live in Evanston/Chicago.  The Fox Valley area, 40 miles west of Chicago, also offers a unique hometown experience while still being a short drive from downtown Chicago!

Living in Chicago Land my whole life has been great. What makes Illinois so fine is that there is so much to offer. A little fact for you is that we are the fifth most populous state in the USA, after California, New York, Texas, and Florida. We have lots of culture in the big city of Chicago.

One of the great things to do in Chicago is the different tours one can take to see a lot and take it in without having to drive yourself. I personally love the Chicago Architectural Cruise. There is too much to mention without writing thousands of words so if you are interested check out the link. If you are curious about seeing a wider spectrum of the city then there are many other tours you could try.

After living in the City of Chicago and the North Shore community of Winnetka I choose Evanston to call home. Why Evanston? It is 20 minutes from downtown Chicago, there are fine beaches and parks as well as many stores and our own downtown which is really growing in recent years. You can walk almost anywhere, the streets are tree lined with a wide range of homes from contemporary to many vintage historic landmarks and Victorian homes from the late 1800s still in wonderful condition. As a Realtor I get calls from all over the country from people wanting to know about Evanston Illinois.

We have Northwestern University, a large Farmers Market, a huge library as well as many summer festivals like the Starlight concerts. This is just one example of what Evanston has to offer. The concerts are held all over the different parks and are free. It is great to hear a wide range of live entertainment to enjoy with friends or family and be in a great park near the lake front.

A few pictures for you, here is the Chicago Skyline I took while boating.

Matt:  Great choice for a re-post.  Noah's pride and love of the area in which he lives and serves is so obviously.  Your generosity of sharing his post is wonderful.  Exactly what we hope to find and see in our Chicagoland professionals.   Kudos to you both ...
