Unique Venue Feature

Bordering Chicago along Lake Michigan, Chicago’s North Shore is the most picturesque region in the metropolitan Chicago area boasting a scenic byway along the lakefront rich in natural beauty and homes and gardens of distinction. We are proud home to Northwestern University, Chicago Botanic Garden, the only Baha’i House of Worship in the Western Hemisphere, Ravinia Festival, the Illinois Holocaust Museum, the North Shore Center for Performing Arts in Skokie and the Charles Dawes Gates House home to the Evanston History Center, the Frances Willard House.

Chicago’s North Shore begins to the north of the City of Chicago in Evanston - a cosmopolitan city with unique stores and diverse cuisine nestled in the charm of a college town. 
Our region is only 20 minutes from downtown Chicago and its 20 lodging options offer a broad variety of accommodation options – from five star luxury to affordable rooms for the budget traveler. In addition, Chicago’s North Shore is a dining and shopping paradise. Some of the most famous chefs have honed their trade in our award winning restaurants and three major shopping centers, Westfield Old Orchard, the Glen Town Center and Northbrook Court. The downtown hubs of Evanston, Winnetka, Northfield and Glencoe along with its other unique retail distircts offer unique boutiques and outdoor dining options to those that favor shopping along tree-lined streets for unique gifts and finds.  Of course, a visit to Lake Michigan is a must. Evanston’s lakefront is free of commercial enterprise and is perfect for walking, jogging, biking or sunbathing and swimming in the clear waters of the lake during the summer months.
