My husband and I spent an hour walking the park and enjoying the history it has to offer. If you’re looking for a place to relax, exercise or simply go for a stroll, this is the perfect location. There is a park for small children,...More
We live near Highland, and have been many times. There is a great playground and a nature conservatory (costs extra) that is great for the kids. Other than during the lilac festival (which is beautiful and great for its own reasons) it is a generally...More

As with others, I'm sorry I did not see this question before your visit. I hope you had a wonderful time, and that you saw the lilacs (which sometimes get forgotten among the razzmatazz of the part of the festival that is south of the lilacs. I hope you also saw the Lamberton Conservatory, and that perhaps one of the musical events was to your taste.
We will be driving from Highland Park, NJ (Rutgers area) up to New Windsor, NY (Westpoint area) and then over to Boston in the Fall. We'd like to plan a nice route from New Windsor over to Boston. We could spend one night on the way at a midpoint. We love the outdoors and we'd like to see something other than concrete on our drive to Boston. We will have a rental car. Another option would be to skip to northern trip to New Windsor and go directly from NJ to Boston as an option. Any...More

Foliage depends on when your travel dates are. Each are has a 1 or so week "peak" season, with increasing beauty before, and rapid die off after. The areas you're talking about are usually Peak in October, but it varies from year to year based on the weather. You can easily find historic info online (try Yankee Magazine's website for good data). Route 2 through Northern Mass is out of your way a bit, but is beautiful to travel no matter what season, and if you happen to go through a Peak...More
Relocation to Hollywood, this summer or next. Help... (2 Replies)
to figure out best place to find a long term rental house. We have 3 kids need 2 bedrooms at least. How are the following areas for families; Hollywood Hills, Hollywood, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Los Feliz, Highland Park, and Laurel Canyon? We will be sending the kids to Catholic School. Any schools in these areas? We like old renovated homes with hardwood floors and high ceilings, in a nice neighborhood. What info could you provide?

20+ year Realtor, here. Briefly, prices here are a real shock compared to the rest of the country (especially Florida). The first thing to decide is: how much can you comfortably spend each month, The areas you listed are all pretty good (although Silverlake and Echo Park have good and bad areas). Los Feliz is probably the best of the lot because the Hollywood Hills (which actually covers a gigantic area) might not be a convenient place for kids -- long drives to the store,...More
Lyft and Uber availability (5 Replies)
We are coming to Highland Park in early September for a wedding. Instead of renting a car, I was wondering about the availability of Lyft and Uber in that area. We'd also need to get to and from O'Hare and perhaps down to Evanston once or twice from HP. We're only going to be there for a few days.

I don't know whether uber goes as far north as HP, but American Taxi and 303 Taxi do. Just Google them. You also can call them for a ride to Highland Park from the airport. (You have to call them on the phone to get an airport pickup) As the other poster mentioned, the Metra train is probably the best way to get to Evanston.
