The Most Exciting Suburbs In America

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker 475.140531

How would you like to live in Evanston IL one of the top most exciting suburbs in America? I sure would and do. Randy Nelson the content Editor for the Movoto Blog is rating the top Ten most exciting suburbs in America in the Movoto Blog, The Lighter Side Of Real Estate.

They say that the top ten is:

01. Cambridge, MA

 2. Quincy, MA

 3. Berkeley, CA

 4. Miami Beach, FL

 5. Santa Monica, CA

 6. Lakewood, OH

 7. Jacksonville Beach, FL

 8. Tempe, AZ

 9. Santa Clara, CA

 10. Evanston, IL

One very interesting quotes is "One of Chicago's suburbs, Evanston placed fifth overall in terms of youthful residents and the top 25 for nightclubs".

I could really go on and on about how great it is here to live but will only be able to scratch the surface today.

Space is one of my favorite music venues ever. You can hear just about any type of music there is. It has become internationally known since opening in 2008. Downbeat Magazine will be honoring as one of the top jazz venues in the world in February. Downbeat started in Chicago in 1934.

Some of the artists coming up at Space are Henry Butler, Terence Blanchard, Maceo Parker and Stanley Clarke among many others. There is so much different types of artists who have played at SPACE I could write a whole blog just about that. Otis Clay just played, Alejandro Esovedo, Booker T. Jones (remember Booker T and the MG's?), Todd Rundgren is playing and the great Blues singer Shemekia Copeland recently played.

There is also Pete Millers Steak House that also has live Jazz and great food. So many great musicians have played there in the past including Dr. John and so many others.

There is Club 27 which is a music venue and restaurant. Club 27 just had a benefit for the horrible fire at the building that housed the Pine Yard that I wrote about in another blog recently.

The Movoto piece also rated these 10 most Exciting Suburbs by Parks, Outdoor Activities. We have wonderful parks and beaches. There are 6 public beaches with a dog beach too. Lighthouse Beach, Clark Street Beach, Dog Beach, Greenwood street Beach, Lee Street Beach and South Boulevard Beach. 

There are 76 parks and 50 playgrounds with over 300 acres of land to play and hang out on. The city of Evanston takes great pride in these facilities and goes over every beach and park with a fine tooth comb almost every day, it's hard to believe it when you see them raking the beaches every day in the summer early in the morning.

The top rating included "Percentage of Restaurants that are fast food, the lower the better" The eating scene in Evanston is out of this world. There is every type of food available and that would talk a 1,000 word post for me to tell you the choices available.  So I will link you to see yourself. There is the Farmhouse, some fine dining perfect for a date and my favorites are the Chefs Station, KOI, Lulu's, Tapas Barcelona, I love the Stained Glass, Oceanique and Campagnola.

I could go on and on about how great Evanston is but my suggestion is this, you read the Movoto Blog, call or Email Noah or just move here right away.

Hi Noah - Evanston is in good company, and none of those are traditional bedroom suburbs - I've had great evenings out in all of them except Lakewood, and wouldn't mind living in most of them if I were to be banished from Colirado.

Glad to hear Evanston made the list, and I agree with Santa Monica being on the list.  It has undergone so many changes.  When Ron was growing up, it was known as Soviet Monica...LOL.  A

Hi Noah -- a nice shout-out to Evanston.   I'm sure with less snow, it would have beat Santa Monica - one of the nicest and most exciting places I know.
