Oakton

The Historic District Within Evanston
The Oakton Historic District is a quiet place that's great for families and those who want a little more peace and quiet than what's normally found in most Chicago neighborhoods. It's located within the Evanston boundaries, meaning that it's close to Northwestern University. Renters here enjoy the neighborhood for it's friendly people, easy access to all of Evanston, and the fact that it's very pet-friendly.

It's a small and quiet neighborhood so you won't find much nightlife or dining options. However, it's very safe, clean, and you can easily get to most parts of Chicago on the transit. Accessibility to Northwestern and an undisturbed environment are the two main reasons most people choose to rent here.
