Chicago Suburb Named Second Best Place to Live in the US


Winnetka has been named one of the best places to live in the US! NBC Chicago says:

24/7 Wall Street ranked Winnetka near the top of the list, coming in second only to Manhattan Beach in California.

The publication noted that the North Shore community "boasts a high per capita concentration of restaurants, bars and theater companies as well as a total of 27 parks that span nearly 250 acres."

NBC continues to say:

The only other city in Illinois that made the cut was Mahomet, just outside Champaign in central Illinois, which ranked at 38th on the list. 24/7 Wall Street says residents benefit from a "healthy job market," where employment grew nearly four times more quickly than it did nationwide in the last five years. Mahomet also boasts a median household income of $115,619, according to the ranking, and just 2.2% of its residents live below the poverty line.

NBC also says there were specific measures used to determine which cities made the list:

Those measures included things like the ratio of home value to household income, the cost of living, the share of the population living near a grocery store, the incidences of disease and drug fatalities, percentages of workers commuting without a car, the number of attractions - libraries, movie theaters, museums, parks, restaurants - and more.
