My experience living in Evanston is pretty good. Evanston is a little town north of Chicago. The neighborhoods are quiet, the houses are big, a lot of Parks, and the schools are great which is a prefect package for parents that live or looking to move there. Northwestern University is right there also if you to the downtown area. Downtown you'll find everything you need from the stores, restaraunts, gyms, doctors, dentists, therapists, banks its right there . The nightlife is somewhat live no clubs or dancehalls just bars not my kind of scene but to each his own. The diversity is very good, you'll find everyone from different ethnic backgrounds. Overall Evanston is top notch and I will probably stay to raise a family.
