Incorporated in 1869 and named "one of the best places to live" by CNN in 2009, Winnetka is an affluent village approximately 20 miles north of Chicago. Its small-town spirit, charm and traditions make it one of the most delightful villages along Lake Michigan's North Shore. With tree-lined streets, sandy beaches, outstanding parks, quality recreational facilities as well as four business districts, Winnetkais truly a "beautiful land," as its name suggests. Its striking landscape has been home to many feature films including Home Alone, The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
