Median family income: $100,007

Nestled along the shore of Lake Michigan, Evanston invites singles to meet up at its sandy beaches for lakefront walks and bike rides while enjoying a picture-perfect view of Chicago's cityscape. Home to Northwestern University's undergraduate campus and business school, the town also has plenty of sidewalk cafes to sip coffee and mingle with the smart set. If your conversation takes you to world religions or exquisite architecture, stroll down Evanston's tree-lined streets to neighboring Wilmette to get a glimpse of the only Baha'i temple in North America. --H.Y.
