Relocation Guide Main Page - Evanston/Skokie Area Guide
The Town Of Evanston, Illinois is your source for information on Evanston. If your moving to Evanston or just visiting, you will find all kinds of information on real estate, schools, areas, parks, churches, crime, things to do, places to visit, local businesses, dining, and much more!11 miles from the Loop, Evanston is one of the most culturally oriented communities on the North Shore. This diverse community has everything a suburban dweller could want. Its lakeside location, convenient shopping and proximity to Chicago all add to its diverse population.

Evanston has preserved much of its historical charm through such significant buildings as the Gross Point Lighthouse and the Charles Gates Dawes House. The village is home to numerous theater groups, a symphony orchestra, five museums and a number of art galleries and centers.

Growth and urbanization have taken their toll on Evanston’s conservative character, a leftover (some say) of an amendment to Northwestern University charter, passed back in 1853 that prohibited the sale of liquor within four miles of the university. This amendment had a profound and continuing effect on the city, keeping it 'dry' until the 1970s. As a result, Evanston was a staunch supporter of the prohibition movement, and in 1874, the Women's Christian Temperance Union was founded here

A further improvement to Evanston is the new Davis Street train station, completed in 1994, which links both Metra and CTA platforms as well as bus services and taxis. Evanston today is a vibrant and diverse community, with many varied activities and cultural interests. It is the city that gave the world Tinkertoys (invented there in 1914), and originated the name for the “ice cream sundae.” The “World's Largest Garage Sale” takes place here every year, as well as the Fountain Square Arts Festival. With a strong 150-year history, healthy offering of the arts and education, fantastic lakefront, and a thriving business environment, Evanston's offers everything wanted in a small town, as well as being a hop, skip and jump from downtown Chicago.
