Welcome to Winnetka
There’s a reason why Winnetka (pop. 12,187) is often referred to as “the crown jewel of the North Shore.” Renowned schools, public beaches and parks, recreational amenities, easy access to downtown Chicago, the natural and built environment, civic institutions, social and charitable organizations, and the community’s intellectual diversity and vitality all rank among the very best in Chicagoland, if not the nation. Natural beauty brought early settlers, but through careful planning, Winnetka has maintained an historic, small town charm, and family-oriented neighborhoods, while being a thriving village for people to live, work and visit. Named “one of the best places to live” by CNN Money in 2011, Winnetka is approximately 20 miles north of downtown Chicago.
