      Highland Park is a beautiful city outside of Chicago. It has an upscale yet quaint feel. There are many beautiful homes and landscapes throughout the town. I love Highland Park because of the high quality of life that it offers me and my family. There is always something to do, always opportunities to learn new things, and beautiful views to take in.

      Highland Park has a lot of places to eat and shop. While a lot of them are chains, there are several places that are strictly from Highland Park. One of the more memorable of these places being Cafe Central. Cafe Central is like walking into Paris. There is great French food and drinks in a warm and very Parisian style bistro.

      While Highland Park might be a bit more quiet and calm than the city, it is just a short drive into the heart of Chicago. I think that the proximity to the city while maintaining the safer and more reserved lifestyle is the biggest benefit of Highland Park living.
