The Village of Wilmette is situated on Lake Michigan approximately 16 miles north of downtown Chicago. Conveniently located off of the Edens Expressway (I-94), it is bordered on the south by Evanston and on the north by Kenilworth and Northfield.
For most non-Midwesterners, the City of Chicago is almost synonymous with the word Illinois. For those in the know, outside the City of Chicago are lush prairies and preserves and some truly amazing suburbs that offer an abundance of opportunities to their inhabitants. The North Shore, in particular, is filled with areas that are rich with culture, stocked with amenities, and embrace the nature that surrounds the living spaces.
