Winnetka is located 16 miles north of downtown Chicago. It is an affluent North Shore village nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan, with 4 scenic beaches, a boat launch, and numerous parks.
Winnetka has three charming business districts with independent retailers and restaurants. There is a refreshing absence of “big box stores” in the village; instead, you’ll find vintage architecture, tree-lined streets, and a pedestrian-friendly downtown.
Luxurious estates, classic single-family homes and well-appointed townhomes offer a full spectrum of residential lifestyles. While Winnetka feels like a world away from the big city, its three Metra stations provide an easy commute to Chicago.
