An afluent suburb, north of Chicago, situated directly on Lake Michigan. Home of not only the stereotypical "rich kid", but also many extremely intelligent and driven people, as well as an average number of below-average people. Typically singled out because the average citizen is fairly wealthy, and the homes are very high-priced.

"Who're those girls wearing designer clothing and getting into that Range Rover?"
"Oh, those are those girls from Lake Forest."
The 1st richest city in the world. A suburb north of Chicago
, this is one of the best places in the country to live according to the federal government and several almanacs. It has police on every corner, a low crime rate, and very expensive clothing stores, places to shop, grocery stores, etc. To buy a small house in Lake
Forest is at least $400,000. Don't plan on living here unless you want to be surrounded by materialistic
people who will call you a poser if you wear etnies sweatshirts if you don't skateboard and smoke. This is truely the best city in the Chicago land area, with its low-class rivals, the people from Highlandpark, the druggies from Lake Bluff, Lake Forest is truely the best mix of all cultures, with a wide range of people from sluts to badasses, popular bitches to nerds, and goody goodies to rebels. The amount of people living in lots 8000 sqare feet or larger is almost 80% of the people, the public education teaches children 60% more of what other public schools in the Chicago land area do, although the material is harder and amount of homework is much larger. The most mansion-worthy streets in this wealthy city are Lake Road and Westminster. If you like diversity in races, this is not the place to be. 90% of all the people are white and christian/catholic. Residents here are 20% Greek, 18% German, 6% Swedish, 3% Colombian, 2% Serb...
Lake Forest is located 30 miles north of Chicago. Despite a few contradictions, it is truly the third wealthiest town in the United States. Many surrounding towns compete to be the best of the north shore, but Kenilworth
is the only the nearby town that tops LF's affluency. People on the north shore stereotype people in lake forest as snotty drug addicts who would never make it at New Trier
. NT is by far one of the best public high schools in the country but LF's two high schools are almost equivalent. LFHS
is possibly the most beautiful public high school in the country and has been gaining testing strength almost outranking NT. LFA
is the only coed boarding school in the Chicago-land area and is highly regarded as one of the world's best schools, even passing NT. The problem with drugs is limited. Although the bitchy reputation can sometimes be portrayed most of the residents are polite, considerate and appreciative of what they have. The designer clothes that are said to fill their closets are mixed in with things found at Target.
Lake Forest is a great place.
It is also an amazing city in California.
Lake Forest, CA
I have lived in LF my whole life and i currently go to the wealthy, beautiful, smart, Lake Forest High School.
Lake Forest is a very wealthy white christian suburb located along Lake Michigan in the north shore of Chicago. The residents have more money than they know what to do with. Majority own multiple homes and at least one boat. Their children attend Lake Forest High School, one of the top three best high schools in Illinois. Not to mention one of the filthiest rich schools in the country, even though the whole school consists of about 2,000 very affluent, rich, wealthy, spoiled, BEAUTIFUL kids. For a reference to the outsiders, Lake Forest is the Greenwich or Orange County of the Midwest.
Lake Forest kids are too good for anything costing less than 200 dollars, and thats only clothes wise.
Most everyone in lake forest belongs to at least one country club, i belong to Exmoor, some others are Onwentsia CC, North Shore CC, Indian Hill CC, Lake Forest CC, Medina, Royal Melbourne, and many more
