Its a melting pot of the coolest people from every different country, and not to mention the most epic beaches and surf in the world. You should definately visit, just dont forget to leave :)
wake up, search through their huge closet full of designer clothes. today they feel like dressing more on the downside, what do they put on? a preppy lacoste polo (collar up), with a pair of trendy seven jeans and a juicy sweater. shoes are probably pretty expensive, and to top it all off, tiffany jewelry completes the ensemble. pack your "backpack" (i.e., your herve chaplier big bag). books, kate spade pencil case, louis vuitton planner, prada wallet with their 100s of dollars daily allowance, keys on a coach keychain, cell phone...everything is there. time for school, hop into your bmw and pick up your best accessories, your friends. they are probably wearing similar things than you...all designer, pricey bag, jewels, etc. they don't have their licences yet, but as soon as they do, you'll probably switch off between your bmw and their mercedes and range rovers. school..everyone is the queen bee. everyone has different personalities, but they still have a lot in common with the others- closets full of pricey clothes and high class parents. now that it's the end of the day, its time to go out with your best girls, grab a latte and "do homework". Your so wiped that you go home, chill and go to bed. it will be the same thing tomorrow.
Highland Park kid "Yeah, they have never even been inside of EStreet!"
Winnetka kid "I feel so bad for them."
*note nobody talks to your face here in the North Shore
Kenilworth, Winnetka, Wilmette, Glenview, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Northbrook, Deerfield, and Evanston. Basically, the average costs of these houses are well over 1 million dollars, and some of these propertys are even on the lake. Many kids have all designer clothes and for their sixteenth brithdays get cars such as BMWs, Lexus', Audis, and i have even heard of some getting Lamborghinis. Some 16 year olds even get yachts for their birthdays. This area is full of many bitches that you really don't want to be around, but it also has some nice people.
The North Shore is a group of suburbs north of Chicago that the majority of line up against Lake Michigan, thus the name "North Shore".
I'm from Chicago, and I will truthfully say that no, not all of the "North Shore" is snobby rich kids. (Like Evanston for instance, is a pretty decent and diverse suburb). However, don't give us the "you're just jealous because you wish you were as rich as us" attitude. Because honestly, it is way cheaper to live in the suburbs than it is to live in the city. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that everyone in Chicago can move to the north shore and buy a mansion. What I'm saying is that if all the rich families in the north shore were to move into the rich neighborhoods of Chicago, they wouldn't even nearly be able to aford the same quality houses they once had.
We don't need you to tell us you're rich. We've seen rich. Chicago has families with more wealth beyond your beliefs, so that's not an issue with us. It's the stuck up attitude that pisses off a lot of Chicago residents. Believe me, We have areas like Hyde Park, Lincoln Park, and The Loop. All of which have families with 10 times more cash than your families, so your wealth is nothing of suprise to us.
In Chicago we don't care if you've got a great car, a huge house, or a nice school. Our lives are still more exciting than yours.
A popular movie that depicts some of the snootiness in comparison to the normality of the North Shore is Mean Girls
