Evanston IL Rated The Most Exciting City In Illinois

Evanston IL Rated The Most Exciting City In Illinois as per the Movoto Blog which their moto is “the Lighter Side Of Real Estate”. In an interesting blog article written by Movoto’s staff writer Natalie Grigson.

I quote Natalie in saying “If you thought Chicago was the only thing going on in Illinois, think again. These are the 10 most exciting places in the Prairie State—and Chicago’s ranking might just surprise you”.

It makes us Evanstoniaons proud to know we are being thought of and rated number one. In the past 15 years Evanston has been built up quite a bit with many high rise condo buildings and Northwestern University has greatly expanded, When you add this there is a need for more dining, shopping and entertainment. That and the fact the we have wonderful parks, beaches a downtown with walking distance to multiple forms of public transportation such as the Metra and EL then its easy to see why Evanston IL is the winner.

I quote Movado again in:

“Let’s be honest here. When most people think of Illinois, apart from Chicago the word “excitement” isn’t exactly the first thing that springs to mind. Of course, that doesn’t mean Illinois isn’t a fine state—there are plenty of wonderful places there, but exciting?

As it turns out, yes, really. On our latest mission to uncover the most exciting places in the country, we headed to Illinois and found the 10 most exciting places in the state. Why? Because that’s part of what we do here on the Movoto Real Estate Blog.
