I live here, so I may be biased, but I don't think there's anyplace in the Chicago area that can touch the North Shore in terms of lifestyle, education and recreation. The North Shore has everything you could want, except maybe the lowest cost housing. But even that has its positive side. Housing on the North Shore tends to hold its value better than anywhere else in the area, because there is always a market for homes in established lakefront communities.

I could go on and on but probably the easiest way to tell you about all the things the North Shore has to offer is with my top ten list.
