A handful of the North Shore’s villages vie to be recognized as the “best” the Northern suburbs has to offer; if Wilmette doesn’t take the cake, it comes close.
Just 15 miles north of the Loop, it offers both proximity to the City as well as beautifully manicured neighborhoods, diverse architecture, an extensive park district, of course beach access, and one of the finest school districts in the country.
These factors add up to make a wonderful community, but none can come close to the village’s crowning jewel: The Baha’i Temple. The nine-sided dome temple took forty years to complete, is surrounded by nine fountains and nine flower gardens, and draws tourists from all over the world.
