Celebrate the Fall Season on Chicago's North Shore

The weather is changing, the leaves are turning color and even the local events are taking on a new theme— it's fall on the North Shore and a busy schedule is in store! The North Shore is beautiful no matter the season, but the fall is especially noteworthy.

As your local real estate expert in addition to a resident myself, I'm happy to share the many ways to enjoy our area! Mark your calendars for the following festive fall events in Glencoe, Winnetka, Deerfield, Northbrook, Highland Park and beyond:
