WELCOME TO EVANSTON
The largest North Shore community in population, Evanston has remained a stable and attractive place to live since its establishment in the late 19th century. Home to Northwestern University, the town carries much pride in the important academic pursuits that occur within its very borders. Offering residents a vibrant downtown with some of the area's most popular restaurants, theatres and shopping destinations, Evanston attracts North Shore residents and Chicagoans alike, offering something for everyone. Community government is strong and meaningful, managing an array of resources and that offer more diversity and interest than some of the smaller communities, while also preserving a steady real estate market and positive living environment.
