Located just 25 miles north of downtown Chicago, Northbrook is one of the most vibrant communities on Chicago’s North Shore and an ideal place to live, work, shop and play. The Village is graced with a vivacious and diverse business community, top-rated schools, outstanding recreational facilities and civic-minded residents who work tirelessly to bring together world class amenities while maintaining the area’s small-town charm.
The Village of Glenview had 350 residents when it was incorporated in 1899. Today, the population is almost 47,000. Located in Cook County, the Village's fine amenities and services, excellent schools, 34 parks and playgrounds covering more than 290 acres, numerous options for shopping and dining and proximity to local expressways and commuter trains have made it one of Chicago's premier suburbs -- a vibrant, thriving community that manages growth with success and style.
The Village of Northfield is nestled just beyond the bustling energy of Chicago in the North Shore. It is perfect for discerning families who value their privacy and a laid-back lifestyle. Living in Northfield is comfortable by nature and connected by choice, so you can have what you want in life and still be yourself.
Located just 24 miles north of Chicago’s Loop, the Village of Glencoe is bordered by Lake Michigan, the Cook County Forest Preserve, and the Glencoe Golf Course. Glencoe has maintained this historic small-town charm, as well as family-oriented neighborhoods while developing into a thriving village for people to live, work, and visit. With abundant parks, convenient beach facilities, and one of the most attractive business districts along the North Shore, Glencoe is a great place to visit. Whether you come to shop and eat downtown, to spend the day at the Chicago Botanic Garden, to enjoy a show at the regionally acclaimed Writers Theatre, or to take in the sight of one of our thirteen Frank Lloyd Wright-designed structures—there is plenty to see and do.
Kenilworth is located approximately 17 miles north of downtown Chicago, and is the newest of the 8 Chicago suburban communities front on lake Michigan, commonly referred to as "the North Shore." Of the communities in the area, Kenilworth is the only one developed as a planned community. In 1889 Joseph Sears purchased 223.6 acres of land, at cost of $150,300. Seven years later, the population of that area had reached 300 residents, fulfilling the new legal requirement for incorporation, and the creation of Kenilworth. Joseph Sears possessed definite ideas about how the village should be planned. Lots were large and streets were platted to maximize the availability of sunlight in each home, utilities were placed underground, no alleys or fences were permitted, and construction standards were high. Mr. Sears believed a village whose center lies in the family should also have a church and a school and subsequently donated land for both.
Incorporated in 1894, Wheeling's beginnings came as an overnight stop for travelers from Chicago who were headed to the Wisconsin Territory via the overland trail now known as Milwaukee Avenue (Illinois Route 21). The string of inns, taverns and eateries established in the 1830's was the start of what is now Wheeling's renowned Restaurant Row.
Farmers took advantage of the area's fertile soil, and growing overland transportation network. Soon the stage stop community began to export its crops. Wheeling became particularly well known for its landscaping nurseries.
Later, in step with the growth of Metro Chicago, Wheeling emerged as a center for industry and commerce in the 1960's. Manufacturing plants that clustered in Wheeling brought rail transportation (SOO LINE) for the shipping of freight to and from the area. These manufacturers were followed by the development of residential neighborhoods. Commercial development followed the population growth.
Nestled along Lake Michigan’s North Shore, Winnetka is a community of tree-lined streets, sandy beaches, renowned schools, outstanding parks, quality recreation facilities, and plentiful non-profit and religious organizations. Founded in 1869, the name given to the community was a Native American word meaning "beautiful land." Natural beauty brought early settlers, but through careful planning, Winnetka has maintained a historic, small town charm, as well as family-oriented neighborhoods, while developing into a thriving village for people to live, work, and visit.
Winnetka was named "one of the best places to live" by 24/7 Wall Street in 2020
