This community has solid, well-made homes that give you an incredibly good value for your dollar.
The parks, transportation and civic activities cater to all ages and thus we see many multi-generational families able to live wonderful lives in the area.
While you may be able to buy more house in communities 45 minutes northwest of here, Wilmette gives you what you put in to it.
Your kids can safely take a bus with their friends to see a movie at the charming Wilmette Theater followed by yogurt or cupcakes around the corner.
If you work full-time you have coverage from 7am to 6pm nearly every weekday of the year in our award-winning schools and community center.
As opposed to those further out communities, Wilmette offers you three public bus routes, two train systems and the expressway as options to get you to work each day.
If you run out of milk, you can easily run out to many local stores less than 5 minutes away to get some. Errands here do not mean a 20 minute ride in the car battling traffic.
There are no multi-lane wide roads here. Pedestrians, joggers and bike riders can safely travel in the community.
