Most times that I'm in Chicagoland, I end up here. Sometimes it's quite a drive, but this personal journey is always worth it. I usually have something significant on my mind, and the quiet peace and beauty clears my head as I walk it out. I don't always remember the landscape details of my few hours stroll, but I always ...Popular withOutdoorBudgetWellness

Professional picnickers flock here every summer to hear from some of the best bands like the Beach Boys, Art Garfunkel, and Tony Bennett. If you get a lawn ticket, come early enough to snag a good spot by the pavilion and just accept that you will be outdone in picnic style by your neighbors.

The campus is gorgeous, quaint, and inspiring. We came here to tour the campus for our Zachary, who wants to go to grad school here for Journalism. The campus is right next to lake Michigan. It actually has its own private beach. Great school.Popular withHistoryStudentsFamilies

The Grosse Point Lighthouse on Sheridan was built in 1873 because so many ships approaching Chicago were wrecking off the shore of Evanston. It's still working too. It's now maintained as a national landmark with a nice park around it. During the summer weekends they lead free tours and allow people to go to the top of the lighthouse.

This warren of book rooms is tucked away in an alley in downtown Evanston. Visit soon, as the elderly owner is on the verge of closing shop. In additions to books he's collected all manner of memorabilia and quirky decor.

Perfect place to go for a bit of Asian shopping and food. Grocery store carries many things that cant be found in large US chains and the food court has always been top notch. Other small shops are also interesting though they tend to change each time I visit.
