The Windy City may be cold, but the people here sure aren't. Chicago has all the Midwestern charm and friendliness you could want and all of the culture, art, jobs, and opportunities of a world class metropolitan city. Millions of people travel to see the great sites of Chicago every year, but the locals are lucky enough to enjoy them every day. Be sure to experience the great food of Chicago. The deep dish pizzas and Chicago-style hot dogs will blow your mind! And, of course, there are tons of five-star, fine dining restaurants in Chicago that are known and respected throughout America.

Chicago is a city that loves art. It is famous for its beautiful skyline and the innovative architects that continue to add to it. Architecture buffs will love to tour the city, seeing iconic skyscrapers by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Louis Sullivan. Head outside of town to see some of Frank Lloyd Wright's beautiful Chicago bungalow homes. Architectural history is still being made, with several major high rise buildings under construction and in development right now. Be sure to check out Millennium Park, a modernist showcase of artists and architects alike such as Frank Gehry and Kathryn Gustafson. It is just one of many major public art showcases in this city that are free for everyone to enjoy. Be sure to see the famous sculptures by artists like Picasso, Chagall, and Miro.

Theater, orchestras, opera, and ballet are also important to the cultural mix of Chicago, offering unusual experiences like the Second City Improv Theater and the Lithuanian Opera Company of Chicago, in addition to the more traditional companies. The arts aren't the only thing that is diverse in this city. The economy is frequently held up as an example of a markedly resilient mix of businesses in finance, the music industry, tech start-ups, health care, and many other fields. Education plays a big role in Chicago too, with top-rated universities like the University of Chicago and Northwestern right in the metropolitan area. Other great colleges like DePaul and the Art Institute of Chicago help keep the young energy of this city alive.

Chicago is one of those places that is great for families of any age and size. Many young professionals live right in the heart of the city, in brand new condos, allowing them to walk to work, shop, and play. The L, short for the elevated train, is great for getting around downtown. Metra, the commuter train network, is the second most-used commuter train network after New York City's. It can easily get mom and dad to work in the city from a home in a smaller town that is more family-oriented. New development is happening now as more and more people realize all the great perks of living in Chicago.
