Don't Miss These Events This Weekend in Highland Park!

One of the things I love about working as a North Shore Real Estate agent is being able to share with buyers and those relocating to the area about the great communities that make up Chicago’s North Shore!  I’ve worked in the cities of Northbrook, Highland Park, Deerfield, Glencoe and Winnetka for a number of years and enjoy highlighting the unique aspects of each community!

Today, I wanted to take time to showcase charming Highland Park.  Incorporated in 1869, Highland Park began as a community of merely 500 residents.  Since then, the city has grown into a thriving area with a diverse population, great education, strong businesses and a wide variety of things to do year round!  

In fact, I want to invite you to join in on a few events taking place this weekend in Highland Park!  Whether you’re a current resident, or you’re interested in learning more about the Highland Park lifestyle; you’ll be sure to enjoy these festivities!
