Renter’s Guide to Evanston, IL
The city of Evanston, Illinois, located along Chicago’s northern city limits on beautiful Lake Michigan, is considered a suburb of the Windy City! Home to one the country’s finest universities, Northwestern University, its cultural amenities and robust economy make Evanston a great city in its own rights. Evanston to Chicago’s O’Hare airport is a mere 15 miles away, where flights to San Francisco take only three-and-a-half hours and to New York City just over two hours.
Evanston’s weather is tempered by its location on the shores of the Great Lakes. Summer tends to be hot and humid, but when winds shift off the lake, temperatures shift as well, thus giving rise to the often-heard phrase “cooler by the lake.” Winters can be cold and snowy but mild lake waters mitigate the cold and often temperatures are warmer than what they would be during the coldest months of the year. Evanston regularly ranks as one of the best U.S. cities to live in and was recently rated as the 5th best place in the country in the 2014 annual survey conducted by 24/7 Wall St.
