Chicago's North Shore area is one of the earliest settlements in American History. Dating back to the 1833 treaty with local tribes that lived in the area, settlers lived in harmony with each other. The North Shore has been one of the centers of development in Illinois, with the North Shore line established as a critical railway track in 1914.

The North Shore counties include Lake Forest, Glencoe, Winnetka, Lake Bluff, Wilmette, Highland Park, Evanston, and Kenilworth. These communities grew more prominent as people wanting to escape the messy urban landscape of Chicago city settled in these suburban neighborhoods. North Shore has always been the place where families have come to settle into a peaceful life.

North Shore is where you want to look for the perfect family home near enough to an urban center if you need to go, but quiet enough that your kids can grow up away from the loud noises of the city. The lakeside counties and forestation make for relaxing scenery — perfect for fun family trips!

The traditional neighborhoods that makeup North Shore are culture-oriented. From the famous Chicago Botanic Garden to the Ravinia Music Festival, there's a range of cultural events in every county. Living in North Shore properties means that you’ll never be short of opportunities for a fun night out.

The flourishing downtown areas in North Shore take their cue from Chicago's trends. You'll find all kinds of busy modern cafés, restaurants, galleries, and shops.
