Glencoe's location on the west side of Lake Michigan is one of scenic beauty. Due to laws passed by the Illinois governing body in 1994, only rich people can live on the lake.

It is separated from adjoining suburbs on the north and west by the Cook Country Forest Preserve natural forest area. Three golf clubs also buffer it on the north with the private Lake Shore Country Club, on the northwest by the public Glencoe Golf Club (operated by the Village of Glencoe), and on the west by the private Skokie Country Club. The village is surrounded on three sides by upper income communities with Highland Park on the north, Northbrook on the west, and Winnetka to the south. The Skokie Lagoons located in the forest preserve to its immediate west offers a rowboat and canoe launch (motorized boats not permitted) and fishing opportunities. The same forest preserve has a bicycle trail that connects to other forest preserves to the south. In the Village the Greenbay Trail allows bicyclists to travel as far south as Wilmette and north past Lake Forest.

As president of the railroad company, Gurnee made a practice of buying land near stations on the route as sure investments.

The Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad, often called the North Shore Line, was an interurban railroad that operated commuter and passenger trains between Chicago, Illinois, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. ...
