This University town is off the beaten path for tourism but is a lovely escape from the city. The town itself has grown a lot in the last 15 years but still retains some quaintness. A nice place to stroll along the lake front, catch a glimpse of the Chicago skyline, and grab a coffee. The Northwestern campus and the surrounding residential neighborhood have great architecture. If you’ve made it this far north, you should also consider going a few miles farther to see the Bahai Temple.

This is where I was born, and soon after me and my Parents moved to Lombard. Perhaps this move scared me away from Northwestern and into the loving arms of the University of Iowa?
I have actually been to Evanston several time since, as my best friend from College lived nearby, and this was a fun place to visit.

Evanston is a walkable little city with Lake Michigan beaches, a thriving downtown, and Northwestern University. My favorite walks are along the Lake Michigan shore and from downtown south along treelined neighborhood streets.

I love Evanston...lived here for about a year. It is very eclectic, just my kind of place. I would live here again if I could afford it. In the winter though it is very cold...The winds off the lake will travel to wherever you are and chill you to your very bones.
