“Highland Park is a flourishing suburb that lies just 23 miles north of downtown Chicago. The community is settled along the lovely Lake Michigan for nearly five miles. It has all of the benefits of the big city, but none of the hassles. The downtown district is abuzz with restaurant goers and shoppers, and once a year the Ravinia Festival takes over, turning the city into a mecca for music lovers, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra who have been playing in Highland Park since the 1930s. Highland Park came in first in safety, with a crime rate 56 percent below the Illinois average. And perhaps not surprisingly, with famous houses like the Willits House by Frank Lloyd Wright dotting the streets, Highland Park came in first when it comes to home values in Chicago. The home values are 221 percent higher than the Illinois average. Way to go, Highland Park.
Highland Park real estate has the ideal blend of housing that range from historic colonials to renowned contemporary homes and downtown condominiums. The National Register of Historic Places has numerous landmark structures by the notable Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as other celebrate architects. Wonderful landscaping has earned this community the most prestigious national honor as “Tree City USA” by the USDA Forest Service and National Association of State Foresters. Public flower gardens, cultivation and preservation of open spaces have enriched the community with a natural sense of organic beauty.”system.
