When it comes to high quality of living in the US, Chicago is up there. In a recent 24/7Wallst. Com ranking of best places to live, Winnetka Village took the No. 2 place. Ranking was based on: affordability, culture, jobs and low crime rate. Situated 20 miles north downtown Chicago, the name is derived from the Native American word for “beautiful land.”
This is not the city’s first Rodeo. Back in 2011 it was featured in CNN Money’s List of Best Places to Live. Plus, location wise it’s hard to find a more picturesque spot, alongside Lake Michigan with its sandy beaches, historic attractions and great educational institutions.
With nearly 30 parks, eateries, specialty merchants four shopping districts, an unemployment rate of 2.4 percent and an average commute time of 37 minutes, this has a lot to offer. The only one disadvantage is the cost of living being 130 percent higher than the national average.
In terms of employment opportunities, it seems NextCapital is a good choice. The enterprise digital advice® firm was featured in the 2020 List of Best Places to Work in Chicago 2020 assembled by Built In. According to firm CEO, John Patterson:
“Investing in the company’s growth and success starts with investing in its people.
