Experience the North Shore Town of Winnetka This Weekend!

Chicago’s North Shore is a great place to call “home” for a wide variety of reasons.  If you currently live in Northbrook, Winnetka, Highland Park, Glencoe, Deerfield or any of the other North Shore cities, you know that the excellent quality of life, stunning North Shore homes, top notch schools and vibrant communities are just a few reasons many want to settle in permanently to this ideal location.
If you’re considering moving to the North Shore this year, figuring out which community best suits your needs and lifestyle is important.  Of course, the commute to a job or schools can be a main priority, but each city has a unique atmosphere and you’ll want to discover the area that feels most like home.
Today I wanted to take a few moments to highlight the North Shore town of Winnetka.  This charming region dates back to 1836 when the first homes were built in the area and was officially incorporated in 1869 with a population of 450.  Rich in history, Winnetka sits today as one of the wealthiest and most exclusive suburbs in the nation.  And, even though it made the list of America’s Top Earning Towns, there’s a strong community oriented culture in Winnekta that provides a comfortable atmosphere and a sense of belonging.
Whether you live in Winnetka or want to get a better feel for what this North Shore town has to offer, you may want to take advantage of a few events taking place this weekend!  A great asset to Winnetka is the Winnetka Community House which serves the community with a wide variety of programs, performing arts and much more.  Take a look at a what’s going on at the WCH this weekend!
