Lake Forest is the name of the Best Town on Chicago's North Shore. With Lake Bluff as its Canada and Highwood as its Mexico, Lake Forest forms a utopian microcosm of the United States. Or, at least, how an ideal United States WOULD be if we got rid of all the minorities, the poor, the curly-haired hippy liberals, etc. Lake Forest is proudly white, proudly Christian, proudly conservative, and largely Republican. Lake Forest is largely Upper Middle Class, with a few really rich people living in mansions down at the lakeshore. Unlike the other towns on the North Shore, whose affluence comes from being professionals, which are filled with professors and journalists and artists and lawyers and doctors...Lake Forest gets its affluence from businessmen and bankers. As such, ours is a happy family-values aristocratic affluence, unlike the existentially angsty liberal intellectualite "affluence" of the "New Trier Suburbs". Our people are SMART, not "intellectual". Religious, not "spiritual". And truly have class, not "culture". In other words, we're the real deal. Happy, friendly, safe. Not poser bohemians like the other North Shore towns. And we ARE better looking than most places. And look and dress more NORMALLY. Those New Trier boys with their long curly hair should visit a barber. Looks like dirty pubes on their head. Get a haircut! We are down-to-earth people who get things done and don't take any crap. Things here have to look nice and be non-offensive. We don't want the angsty overachievment of the New Trier kids of parents who can't get over the 70's. We have less venereal disease than New Trier, and less atheist scum. We are not snobs, just proud. It's the myth of intellectualism in the "New Trier Suburbs" that is snobby. We're just regular Americans, down to earth people who just happened to succeed in business, and decided to use it to build a safe and beautiful town with good schools for the kids to grow up in. As such, we don't much care for the rest of the North Shore's angsty constant-rebellion identity crises.
New Trier Boy #1: It's so unfair. Good genes make you rich, smart, happy, and beautiful. Like those Lake Forest kids. They're so smart and happy and athletic and attractive! The girls have such big, perky tits and the guys have such huge cocks!

New Trier Boy #2: I know, it's so unfair. I'm clearly better than them because I can quote Nietzche and my dads are modern art professors. And yet I'm just going to go write some dark poetry and then hang myself with my own long, dirty, curly hair because I can't help but feel inadequate compared to them.

The 3rd richest town in the country and proably the world. Only Greenwich, CN, and Kenilworth, IL are slightly above the affluent, beautiful lake forest. LF is about 30 miles north east of chicago right on lake michigan. Everyone from lake forest is rich beyond belief compared to the rest of you, people and most everyone is gorgeous. In order to survive in our beautiful small town, you must drive carSSSS like mercedes, porsche, bmw, ferarri, range rover, and lexus. otherwise, your simply a lake forest, white trash, wannabe. all the other suburbs around us strive their hardest to beat us in anything, sports, LOOKS, money not gonna happen, cars& houses again, not gonna happen and just about everything. like someone said above, it's lake forest, we breed perfection. were rich, and your not. get over it. just watch the movie mean girls. Regina george has the typical lake forest lifestyle that we, who live here are proud of. Lake forest is the real north shore, dont expect to survive in the area if you arent gorgeous, wealthy, and smart. Oh, not to mention we are the best, and we will always be the best, so all of you wannabees get over yourselves, lake forest, the real north shore.

It's cooler by the lake.
just face it, everyone wishes they could lead our lake forest lifestyles.

you all are going to try to get rich or die trying.
we dont need to try, its naturally given to us.

YOU wish.

love you all, kiss kiss!

Lake Forest is a wealthy suburb of Chicago situated about 30 miles to the north, directly on the lake. A largely old-money suburb, its residents are widely rumored to be conservative, narrow-minded, racist, homophobic, and antisemitic. While there are examples of such attitudes, especially among the older generations, most residents are comparatively down to earth and accepting of cultural, political, and religious differences. Prejudice against new-money suburbs such as Wilmette, Highland Park, and Winnetka, and against the middle and working class is much more prevalent than any animosity towards minorities. There is a level of snobbishness and materialism, but it is rarely accompanied by hatred or bigotry. Some have suggested that while academically outstanding, Lake Forest High School does little to prevent the perpetuation of the elitist and indifferent attitudes of young Lake Foresters, and indeed, allows the few remaining negative aspects of Lake Forest society to flourish. Because of this, many residents of middle and working class communities such as Evanston and Morton Grove as well as new-money wealthy and upper-middle class communities such as parts of Skokie and Lincolnwood are developing more hatred and resentment for Lake Foresters than is really deserved.
Mom: So, where do you want to have your Bar Mitzvah party, dear?

Boy: How about the Lake Forest Country Club, mom?

Mom: Oh, sweetie, I'm not sure they'd let us in.

Boy: Why not?

Mom: I'll have to explain that to you when you're a little older, honey.

One of the richest, pure raced communisities in the world. The residents usualy have a rather short sighted view of things, but overall, despite being slightly self centered, are good people. Do not expect to see many minorities, and any that you do have either been dregded of any ethnic traces, or are shunned quickly from the "in" crowd. Numerous exclusive country clubs dot the landscape of Lake Forest, or the "LF" as residents call it.
There are two major high schools in the area, a boarding school called Lake Forest Academy, where most of the students are boarders from out of state. The other high school is the public school, called Lake Forest High School. This establishment provides a good mix of rich children and the leff afluent of the area.
"Dude, let's hang out in LB (lake Bluff) this weekend, I just need to get out of Lake Forest for awhile..."
Lake Forest is a place that looks nice. The people are full of themselves and a version of "hood rich" exists here that has never been seen before and that there is no word for because it was probably bought, destroyed, and never released. You will hear the stupidest, most socially inept things come from peoples mouths here, with no excuse for it because these are supposedly smart educated people that think they know about the world but can't figure out simple things around them. And for all the money they have they are never satisfied or happy. They hide their dirt, give each other control, awards, connections, status, information, and expect "people" to be impressed and they are... because they don't know any better and neither do they.
Example 1
College Kid:Mommy, I hate College there are so many "people" here, I don't like what I'm studying, and this place smells.

The Mom:Don't worry my little prince/princess you can come work for your families company and we'll pay you alot and give you a good title.

College Kid:Oh thank God, I almost thought I might have to work, gather experience, and actually make something of myself.

The Mom:You don't have to do anything sweetie, we are from Lake Forest.

Example 2
College Kid:I'm dropping out because school is bullshit and I'm not doing what I want.

College Kid 2:Don't you have to get a job now and pay for the rest of College?

College Kid:Oh no, it's cool, I have a job already working for my family and my parent's already paid it.

College Kid 2:Wow! THAT'S SO COOL!

College Kid:Yeah, it kinda sucks though cuz that means I'll be living back in Lake Forest.

Example 3

Business Man:I had to lay off half the back staff today. It sucked and it made me sad...I think, I can't tell because of the medication.
Friend of Business Man:Why?
Business Man:Well, I wasn't losing money but I wasn't making enough of it and my kid dropped out of college so I needs an expensive car for them to crash and a million dollar condo in The City.It ain't easy pimpin' in Lake Forest. Are you impressed?
Friend OF Business Man:Thoroughly.
Business Man:Excellent, I'm happy now until I run out of medication, lose my alcohol buzz, and go back to work or home to my CHUD of a kid and wife.

An affluent suburb north of Chicago.The people that live in lake forest usually come form old/corrupt money and therefore strive for nothing in everyday life and their schooling except for dating around and "keeping it classy (which really means act like whore/ d-bag you are but don't let too many people find out, because that would be just so not classy)".Lake Forest hides the fact that it has the highest teen drinking and drug rate in America and that if it's people weren't considered rich they would be called trash. In the past 3 months 4 kids have committed suicide (and of course it didn't make local news) because they were tormented by the kids and the suffocating atmosphere at Lake Forest High School. Lake Forest residents refuse to think that maybe their bigotry leads to humble people's demise and instead sob dishonestly about the "friends" they've lost. The guys that live in Lake Forest are far from charming but their money and preppy colored clothing attracts the dumb whores who infest the town whom are raised from birth to look for their potential husbands so they can comfortably stay in their historical roles of stay-at-home moms. People in Lake Forest call themselves "beautiful" when in fact many are walking the line of average and they all look the same. Overall, Lake Forest is a true white trash town (excluding the token black guy).
Person 1: Hey dude, you wanna go to Lake Forest to get some grub?

Person 2: Nah! A sandwich costs like $10 there and besides I wouldn't fit in if ya know what I mean.

Person 1: trust me I know what your sayin dude! Those people are living on cloud 9.

A town located about an hour North of Chicago, Illinois. The town was named for the college (Lake Forest College), which was built around the same time. Everything in Lake Forest is crazy expensive, even though most houses aren't that attractive. The people of Lake Forest generally believe they are better than everyone else.
I walked into Lake Forest High School trying to find the swim locker room but accidently walked into the lacrosse locker room.
