A North Shore community, Wilmette is located just 14 miles north of downtown Chicago. Wilmette is perhaps best known as the backdrop for many John Hughes movies. Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan, Wilmette offers a high standard of living and wonderful recreational activities, including Wilmette Harbor, Gillson Park and several beaches. The historic downtown district and Plaza Del Lago feature excellent shopping and dining. Families are drawn to the area for its exceptional elementary and secondary schools.
For the most part, this single family home community features homes from 100 years ago as well as opportunities for new construction. Limited condo and townhome areas provide reasonable and affordable housing options. Great public transportation via the North Shore Metra and excellent access to area expressways.
