Wilmette is a quaint village town in Cook County, IL, home to 27,000 at last check. A bedroom community nestled in the North Shore region, Wilmette is just 14 miles north of downtown Chicago -- enough space to feel peaceful yet close enough to the hustle and bustle of the city. It's a family town. In fact, Business Week ranked it as #7 back in 2007 as a great place to raise kids in the United States. It's got an eclectic mix of eateries, boutiques, shops, entertainment venues, schools, and a thriving commercial business sector. Thanks to a low crime and unemployment rate, coupled with short commute times and rich history dating back to 1880, it's no wonder so many people choose to put down roots in Wilmette.
