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.
You think you know everything about Lake Forest, but please, don't judge what you don't know.

One of the most affluent towns in the United States. Situated just outside Chicago along Lake Michigan, Lake Forest is home to some of the wealthiest families in America. "Old Money" is a term used most often to describe the residents, who generally occupy the largest mansions, which are on the lake, costing an average of $10 million a pop. Crime is low, expectations are high, and public education is amoung the best in country- Lake Forest High School delivers dozens of graduating students to the Ivy Leagues each year. Voted "best dressed women in America" but Elle Magazine several years running and "Best Places to Live- Most Affluent" by Money Magazine, Lake Forest boasts a town of beautiful, smart, and rich residents like no other place in the world.

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 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.

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% Serbian, 12% Mixed, 35% Polish, 4% Other.
When I become famous, I'm going to move to Lake Forest because their residents let the superstars live in peace, probably because their used to being accosiated with fame.
