Winnetka Best Town to Live in Illinois

January 21, 2019 02:38 PM

A report by the financial news and opinion site 24/7 Wall Street has proclaimed Winnetka the best town to live in Illinois.  Criteria for judging what makes a place "home" include characteristics which are deemed "universally desirable." These include essentials like safe streets, a strong local economy, affordability, and diverse entertainment options.

The report notes that more than a quarter of Winnetka commuters take public transportation, and the Village "boasts four beaches, a boat launch, several parks, a tennis club, a golf course, an ice rink, and forest preserve areas, all open to the public."  The researchers used a weighted index of more than two dozen measures in four categories:  affordability, economy, quality of life, and community to identify the best cities in each state.
