Shorewood is a small town in Will County, Illinois with a population of approximately 12,000 residents. It is located in the northern part of the state and is considered part of the Chicago metropolitan area. Shorewood began as a small fishing and resort community, and prior to becoming incorporated in 1957, the town was known as Troy. The name was changed because there was already a Troy, Illinois in Madison County. Shorewood is situated at the confluence of Interstate 55 (old, historic Route 66,) Interstate 80, Illinois Route 52 and 59, making it very convenient to nearby Chicago and Joliet. In a recent study conducted by the Chicago Sun Times, Shorewood ranked number 16 out of 153 Chicago suburbs for "livability." The study looked at crime rate, schools, home values, property taxes, population density and commute times. Shorewood is home to several community recreational parks, including the 55-acre Four Seasons Park that offers tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, soccer and baseball fields. Hammel Woods is a 305-acre forest preserve along the DuPage River with opportunities for hiking, fishing, canoeing, biking, picnicking and cross-country skiing. Shorewood is also part of the Regional DuPage River Bike Trail. Shorewoods quality of life is attractive to visitors and residents alike and is the perfect blend of quiet living combined with big city amenities.

Shorewood 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.
