The Community of Winnetka

Those who call Winnetka home treasure the foresight of its founders when they added the requirement to plant shade trees to the city's charter. The pedestrian-friendly downtown anchored by the Metra commuter train station provides shopping rivaled only by The Hamptons in New York. Beautiful homes, park-like settings and sandy beaches appeal to the heart and soul of the community. The convenience of a half-hour commute to downtown Chicago only adds to the description of the perfect suburb.
