Living in Chicago
The Windy City sits on the shores of Lake Michigan and enjoys all four seasons. Summers are typically hot and humid, fall and spring are mild and less humid. The winters are famously snowy, blanketing the bustling city of 2.8 million in white.
If you are moving to Chicago, one of your favorite spots may become the beautiful waterfront. The Lake Michigan waterfront has long attracted both residents and tourists alike. To this day, nearly a third of the city’s residents live in the lakefront neighborhoods of Rogers Park and South Shore. These neighborhoods boast an incredible amount of cultural diversity, including Hispanic, East Asian and Greek communities.
Downtown Chicago is the cultural and financial capital of the Midwest. The Chicago Board of Trade and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago are both located within “the Loop”, an area surrounded by raised railroad tracks. A short distance from downtown, you’ll find historic staples of life in Chicago, such as the Chicago Bear’s Soldier Field, the Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field and the University of Chicago.
