Evanston is the most exciting spot in Illinois.
So says the real estate blog Movoto, which ranked the top 10 most exciting communities in the state. Chicago came in No. 4.
The ranking looked at criteria like nightlife and live music per capita, outdoor space and activities per capita, and the percent of 18-34 year olds.
“Evanston may be a suburb of Chicago, but as our analysis showed, it is perfectly exciting on its own, thank you very much,” Movoto says.
