Bordering in the south of Kenilworth and North on Evanston IL, Wilmette sits right on Lake Michigan and is known for its cobblestone streets with no need for speed bumps and tree lined neighborhoods. It's beautiful to live and hang out in Wilmette IL. Recently the downtown area was totally redone with a whole bunch of new restaurants that are all mostly very good to excellent. Wilmette has some very striking vintage homes from the late 1800's, some brick 1920's masterpieces and interesting more modern homes so there is something for anyone. Not just a bedroom community anymore there is property to fit almost anyone's needs yet you get parks, beaches and really unique shops, it's fun just to go for a walk. If you do move with a family in mind the schools are among the best in the country and it is in the New Trier district so the education is geared toward the students needs in whatever path they are taking and there are so many activities for fun and sporting your children will always be entertained.
