Tour week – a drive through Western Springs, the Mayberry of the western suburbs

While I'm away on vacation this week, I'm dipping into the archives to show you around parts of Chicago's western suburbs we haven't visited in a while.

"It's not the town for you if you want to be anonymous," says Ann-Marie Hickey about Western Springs, which has been her home for the past 20 years. "It's Mayberry."

Ann-Marie is a real estate agent with Realty Executives. After wrapping up a video shoot at a beautiful home she's currently representing I asked her to take a few minutes and show me around the town.

The attractions of Western Springs, apart from its small-town atmosphere, include its easy access to downtown Chicago by Metra, good expressway access to O'Hare and Midway Airports, excellent schools and parks, a varied housing stock and a pedestrian-friendly downtown.

Join us for a drive around Western Springs.
