City of Evanston

Located just north of Chicago, Evanston is nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan within sight of the twinkling lights of downtown.  Incorporated in 1863, Evanston boasts national landmarks, numerous museums, performance venues, ninety parks, Northwestern University and a public golf course.  Wide sandy beaches, historic homes on landscaped boulevards, tree-lined bicycle paths, and beautiful parks make Evanston a popular playground in all seasons.

Outstanding transportation is one of Evanston’s most valued assets.  Metra commuter trains and the “el” offer frequent service to downtown Chicago…a twenty minute trip.  Major interstates lie four miles to the west of Evanston.  O’Hare International Airport is also a quick trip southwest of Evanston.

 For entertainment, Evanston has something for everyone, whether you prefer lounging on the beach with a book or trading the summer heat for an air-conditioned theater.  The Evanston Recreation Division's facilities include five public beaches, community theaters, and a senior citizen’s center.  The Evanston Recreation Division offers ballet, gymnastics, and child care programs, as well as various adult classes.
