Evanston Travel Guide: 97 reviews and 149 photos

Evanston is a beautiful and historic community immediately north of Chicago, along Lake Michigan.

It is famous for its historic homes, Northwestern University, and the birthplace of the Women's Christian Temperance Union.

The residents of Evanston are extremely proud of the great history of their community. Throughout the year many events are held celebrating this history. For more information please visit the Evanston Historical Society.

In more recent years Evanston has seen the growth of much more modern architecture. Shown here are a few interesting examples from the downtown core.
