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.
