Highland-Park is city of approximately 31,000, located in Lake County, Illinois. It is one of several affluent towns situated on the North Shore of Chicago. If parts of the town look familiar, that's because it's been the setting of several movies, including Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Risky Business, Ordinary People, Sixteen Candles, Home Alone, Shattered Glass and others. It was also the setting for a television documentary show called American High. The city of Highland Park has several landmark structures that are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, including Willits House by Frank Lloyd Wright. Highland Park has an attractive downtown shopping district and is home to Ravina Festival, which is the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The Ravina Festival is part of the Ravina District, an area in the southern portion of Highland Park that was incorporated as the Village of Ravina before being annexed to Highland Park in 1899. The Ravina District was originally an artists colony, and still retains much of its early character and architecture. A nightly musical at the Ravina Festival includes classical, blues, jazz and rock music. Highland Park is just minutes to downtown Chicago and its famous museums, restaurants and shopping.

Highland Park Weather & Climate

Northeastern Illinois has a four-season continental climate with cold winters and warm, humid summers. The annual precipitation for this region is approximately 36 inches. The area can receive heavy snowfalls and experiences blizzards occasionally. Spring and fall are often the most pleasant in this region. Lake Michigan influences the climate of most of northeastern Illinois. Near the lake, cool breezes provide some relief from summer heat and the lake also tends to increase cloudiness and suppress summer precipitation. Winter precipitation is enhanced by lake-effect snows that occur when winds blow from the north or northeast. These winds allow air to pass over the relatively warm lake, boosting storm system energy and water content, leading to increased snowfall.
