Having promoted itself as “The World’s Largest Village” for years, Skokie is definitely a calm and quiet place to call home. Originally a farming community, Skokie has transformed over the decades with each new immigrant group and the “Baby Boom”. Situated along Chicago’s northern borders, it is also a neighbor to Evanston and several northwestern suburbs. While Skokie serves as a convenient connection to people across the Chicagoland area, it is well known for providing its residents with a great standard of living, an overwhelming feeling of safety, and several opportunities for leisure. Residents can have all their needs met and more. Make sure to visit the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park if you love nature and art, get to know your neighbors at the Skokie Festival of Cultures, and feel free to make your way into Chicago via the CTA’s Yellow Line and with either CTA or PACE buses. I-94 is also nearby whenever you might like to visit loved ones or go on a trip.
