Top Reasons to Live in Chicago IL

  • Chicago, Illinois, the 'Windy City,' is home to 2.8 million residents. Its skyline is dominated by the second-tallest building in the United States, the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). Not bad for a city that all but burned to the ground during the 1871 Great Chicago Fire. Buckingham Fountain, one of the largest fountains in the world and shaped like a wedding cake, can be found in Chicago's "front yard," the sprawling Grant Park, which explains Chicago's motto, "Urbus en Horto," which means "City in a Garden."

  • Weather and ClimateYou get four honest seasons in Chicago, with a rainy spring, cold and snowy winter, hot and humid summer, which can see temperatures of up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and an autumn that can be bright and pleasant or cold and rainy. The cool waters of Lake Michigan are known to send a moist breeze over the city, which can also bring in fog during the spring. This means that Chicago, particularly on the waterfront areas, is, on average, cooler than the rest of Illinois. Conversely, in the winter, temperatures are generally warmer along the shore.
  • Neighborhood GuideAs a general rule, Chicago can be divided into two parts, North and South. South Side is generally regarded as experiencing more violence and crime than North Side. In the north, several districts and neighborhoods are attractive for people looking to move to the city.
