Evanston is a large suburb of Chicago, with about 80,000 people. Geographically, it is located directly north of Chicago - Evanston is the first suburb that you reach as you head north from Chicago along Lake Michigan. Evanston is best known for being the home of Northwestern University, one of the best universities in the midwestern United States, with highly-ranked programs in enginering, journalism, and business, among others.

Demographically, Evanston's population is diverse, ranging from students and the working-class to wealthy mansion-owners. Its downtown, which is located near the Northwestern campus, has a lot of good bars and restaurants, as well as interesting shops. We were there for a wedding recently, and enjoyed our visit.
