Chicago 'Burb' Makes Top 10 List of 'Most Exciting Suburbs'

Evanston was the only Illinois suburb to make the list. Do you think it deserves the spot? Should Crystal Lake — or another Chicago suburb — have made the list?

Agree or disagree: Crystal Lake should've made a top ten list as one of the "most exciting" suburbs in the Chicago area?  

While it didn't make real estate blog Movoto "most exciting" list, one Chicago suburb did. Evanston ranked No. 10 on Movoto's list and was the only Illinois burb on the list. 

Evanston's blurb reads: "One of Chicago’s suburbs, Evanston placed fifth overall in terms of youthful residents and in the top 25 for nightlife."

Cambridge, MA was the top choice. Berkeley and Santa Monica, CA made the list, as did Miami Beach, FL and Tempe, AZ. 

What do you think? Does Crystal Lake deserve its spot on the list? Does Evanston? Any other Chicago suburbs that you think got snubbed?

You have to be kidding me if excitement is the criteria...To consider putting Crystal Lake in a class with Evanston, Berkeley, Cambridge, etc. is both an shoddy self promoting PR attempt and absurd. Get real and eliminate lame topics used as news filler...
