You'll love Evanston! Our street is 100% residential. Just few blocks away there are cafes, gourmet food stores, bakeries, and other specialty shops. If you take a stroll down Central Street, past Northwestern's stadium, you'll find a lovely public golf course and Lake Michigan's Lighthouse Beach.
Evanston is easy to navigate if you're driving, with plenty of street parking nearly everywhere, but there's also good public transportation. The Metra commuter train to downtown Chicago (28 minutes) or downtown Evanston (4 minutes) is only three blocks away. And a little over a mile away is the Purple Line, part of the Chicago Transit Authority's system of elevated and subway trains. You can get to O'Hare by public transportation in 90 minutes, and a flat-rate suburban taxi will get you there in half an hour. (Add at least 20 minutes to get to Midway.)
Northwestern University (Evanston Campus) is just under 3 miles away. Driving time is approximately 10 minutes; bike riding time under 20 minutes. The 205 Pace bus stop is at the corner from the house and the bus ride is about 20 minutes.
Guests will have access to the kitchen, free wifi, and Netflix, Roku in the shared TV room .
