Enjoy Valentine's Weekend in Chicago's North Shore!

There are many reasons why I love living and working in Chicago’s North Shore, and with Valentine’s Day quickly approaching; I thought it’d be a great time to highlight what a few of these cities are doing to celebrate this inspired holiday!

Each of the cities of Winnetka, Glencoe, Northbrook, Highland Park and Deerfield offer an endless variety of restaurants that would be ideal to try out this weekend. Whether you are celebrating with a loved one, or want to gather with a group of friends; you’re sure to find an option and atmosphere that will feature exactly what you’re looking to enjoy! And, while the fare in the North Shore is excellent; there are many other creative ways to enhance your Valentine’s Day experience.
