Enjoy Mother's Day this Weekend in Chicago's North Shore!

Living in Chicago’s North Shore means having the best of fine suburban living with the best shops, restaurants, beautiful tree-line neighborhoods, excellent schools and close proximity to the vibrant metropolis of downtown Chicago!

As North Shore Real Estate agents, we not only enjoy talking about the North Shore Real Estate market and home advice, but love helping others discover what makes Chicago’s North Shore such a great place to call “home.”  Each community in the North Shore, from Evanston, Glencoe and Highland Park to Skokie, Kenilworth and Wilmette all have unique features that make attractive to a variety of people.  Our goal is to help people find the ideal home that fits their needs and lifestyle, as well as a North Shore community that they feel is a place they can enjoy for years to come.

The North Shore offers the quiet lifestyle and charm that many residents seek, but also boasts endless activities and things to do for those who desire to be actively involved in their community.  If you are searching for something to do this weekend to celebrate Mother’s Day, the North Shore has a variety of great events and restaurants that are holding specials in honor of moms.  Below are a few of the highlights of things going on this weekend in the North Shore.
