Lake Forest, IL
The beautiful city of Lake Forest sits nestled in a quiet, secluded forest, just to the west of Lake Michigan and north of the city of Chicago. Lake Forest is well-known for its gorgeous natural scenery and expansive luxury estates, the most exclusive of which enjoy private views of Lake Michigan's pristine waters. With such amenities as Market Square and Lake Forest College, known for its exceptional post-grad opportunities, Lake Forest was designed to be a natural retreat for all its inhabitants.
Located just down the street from the Beacon Place homes is Lake Forest's historic downtown community center. Known as the United States' first planned shopping center, Market Square serves as the city's prime lifestyle and shopping destination. Brimming with high-end designer boutiques, including J. Crew, Bluemercury, and Alixandra Collections, "the Square" is a luxurious public haven fit for Lake Forest's affluent inhabitants.
In addition to the many dining options available in Market Square, Lake Forest is also host to a number of restaurants and cafes in the surrounding area. In the heart of the Lake Forest community since 1986, Egg Harbor Cafe offers great service and flavorful breakfast and lunch creations – as well as a children’s menu, daily specials, a gluten free menu, many healthy options, and delicious catering fare.
In addition to its sprawling golf courses and picturesque harbors, Lake Forest also provides an exceptional college just east of its downtown center. From its website: "Lake Forest College, located by Lake Michigan on Chicago’s North Shore, provides access to an outstanding education that gives students a big edge on jobs after graduation."
