North Shore (Chicago)

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Map of northeastern Illinois showing the North Shore and surrounding areas.

The North Shore is made up of many rich suburbs north of Chicago, Illinois. It borders the shores of Lake Michigan. These communities fall within suburban Cook County and Lake County.

Evanston, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest, and Lake Bluff are thought to be the main members of the North Shore, as all are affluent communities that border the lake just north of Chicago.[1]
