Suburban Tour: Evanston

Why live in Evanston:

The city of Evanston is located along Lake Michigan just north of Chicago (13 miles to downtown Chicago). It has the best of both worlds - city and suburban living. Home to Northwestern University, this charming midwestern city is diverse in so many ways - from historical homes to trendy shopping to cultural and business opportunities. It's home to some 75,000 residents.

 

Fun Facts about Evanston:

1.  Evanston was first settled back in 1836.

2.  Northwestern University welcomed its first students in 1855.

3.  After the 1871 Chicago Fire, many Chicagoans looked towards the suburbs, and Evanston, for new homes.
