Things To Do This Weekend on Chicago's North Shore!

As many of you know, Chicago’s beautiful North Shore is wonderful place to call “home.”  In my years of living here and working as a North Shore Real Estate agent; I can attest to the excellent quality of life, vibrant communities and its’ naturally stunning setting.
With Memorial Day quickly approaching, our thoughts turn towards summer on the North Shore, and the fun events and opportunities to enjoy time outdoors with family and friends.  It seems that whether you live in Winnetka, Northbrook, Deerfield, Glencoe or Highland Park; there’s always something to do! 
If you don’t currently live on Chicago’s North Shore, but are wondering about the North Shore lifestyle; I would encourage you to visit this weekend to get a sense of what the North Shore has to offer!  Below are just a few of the highlights of events taking place this weekend around the North Shore.
