Connecting Chicago to the North Shore for 150 years

Welcome to Evanston

Boasting a population of nearly 80,000 residents, the City of Evanston in fact is a city and not a suburb. Bordering Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood to its south and Wilmette to its north, it's either a "big town" or a "small city" depending on who you ask. Whatever you classify Evanston as, it's undeniably diverse in everything in style and population. Highly residential throughout with a mixed selection of inventory on its menu, Evanston offers up a little bit of everything for everyone's tastes. It's not uncommon to see multi-million dollar gated estates up and down Sheridan Rd neighbored by 100+ unit apartment complexes - with everyone wanting their access to the lake. If you're lucky enough, you may have your own little slice of private beach access, while the vast majority gratefully relax outdoors at one of the six public beaches in town. Being that it's a city, Evanston has multiple shopping districts with both modern dining and neighborhood staples. Not as exclusive as other North Shore villages, a tour of Evanston's nearly 8 square miles will take you through neighborhoods of all different real estate price points. Offering both new construction and glimpses to Chicagoland's past, Evanston is the home to many, including Northwestern University. 

What to Love

  • Phenomenal access to both downtown Chicago and the North Shore suburbs
  • Diverse people, thinking, and tastes
  • Nine vibrant commercial districts where the surrounding suburbs congregate to shop and dine
  • College town aesthetic in and around the university
  • Six public swimming beaches

What to Do

Encompassing 77 public parks, all homes have easy access to outdoor green space. With six public beaches, Evanston's residents partake in summerlong enjoyment as they relax on the sandy shores. A once Prohibition-era advocate, the today's Evanston has a large variety of places to sit down, have a fantastic meal, and enjoy drinks with a party of your choosing. In recent years, it's become the landing spot for multiple breweries (as has the city of Chicago), which helps maintain the young, hip vibe that the university has provided it for well over a century. Swanky coffee hubs, Irish pubs, and tried-and-true restaurants are seen everywhere in Downtown Evanston and beyond. A very academically minded population with Northwestern University at its center, Evanston is home to many museums for the intellectually curious. And, you'd be remiss to not visit Ryan Field, home of Northwestern University's football team, i.e. "Chicago's Big Ten Team."
