Chicago's wealthy North Shore suburbs may start with Evanston, but you're more likely to meet someone at a community meeting than a country club. Known for their left-leaning activism, its citizens have earned the town the nickname, "The People's Republic of Evanston."
Take the debate to Dempster Street for coffee and a stroll around downtown's little shops. Or hone your oratory with a class at Northwestern University's School of Continuing Education. Or just zip your lip and take a stroll along Lake Michigan. Its quiet beauty is one thing everyone can agree on.
These terrific small cities offer strong job opportunities, great schools, low crime, quality health care, and a true sense of community.
