I would say the entire north shore is overrated. That and Naperville. That's about all I can think of for overrated ones.

Mr. Chicagoisthebest, since WHEN are you NOT a huge fan of Naperville?!? Lol

I'm surprised to see you give all the love for Lincolnwood, although I, too, like it. I came through with the kids tonight. There are several houses in The Towers area of Lincolnwood, with Christmas lights still going, in tgeir Candy Cane Lane.

But there's not much that I know off that would draw outsiders to do.... But they do have some beautiful houses!

One town I can add that really grew on me in 2020 is Highwood! Maybe that's too far north for the list?..... if not, I would welcome our readers to check it out!

Lists like this do not make sense unless one provides info as to why they think that way.

Good morning, I DO like these lists because I like to hear people's likes and dislikes.... so thank you, Chicagoisthebest, to generate some discussion.

As BOBNCHI says, at the same time, it also educates me if people have to time to add a comment or two to support their answer.

As I've said, I DO like Naperville because they have a charming downtown, nice restaurants, but is a bit further for my drive since I prefer to do street and highway drives over the Interstates.

I like Lincolnwood because it appears very safe, clean and beautiful homes. For the most part it seems you have to drive elsewhere for the "living it up" type of restaurants, but that is A-OK with me.

And I mentioned Highwood. Closer to Milwaukee
And has great restaurants, diversity of delis, and an apparent close knit community.
