Safe city with excellent schools

Lake Forest is a very wealthy community in what is known as 'the north shore' - 25 miles north of the city of Chicago along the shore of Lake Michigan. Two train lines run into the city so commuting is very easy (a normal commute is about 60 minutes, but express trains run a few times a day and the ride can be as short as 45 minutes). The community is extremely safe, with wonderful schools. It is very clean with a lot of mature trees. Cost of living, and housing, is on the expensive side though, but the same can be said for most of Chicago's wealthy suburbs.
