Winnetka: A Native American Word for 'Beautiful Place'

The Chicago Tribune's real estate section paints a beautiful picture of one of the city's best suburbs: Winnetka.

"The Winnetka beach is a teal-colored sheet of glass, sailboats gliding along the horizon. The shimmering water is 73 degrees, and the lifeguard's ponytail dances in a summer breeze," the Chicago Tribune began.

The real estate section of the publication paints a beautiful picture of one of Chicago's most appealing suburbs, describing , quaint culture and wealthy residents. With just 16 miles between Winnetka and the downtown loop, the Tribune says it's "what newer Cook County suburbs aspire to be."
