Why is everyone moving to Chicago, IL?
Many choose to move to Chicago for the great quality of living at a reasonable value. Normally, you will find thousands of real estate listings that include homes, apartments, condos, or lofts. Chicago is also known for its array of sights and entertainment. After moving to Chicago, you can enjoy a Bulls game at the United Center or take look at the city from the Sears Tower. Once you're all settled in, be sure to visit one of the city's visitor centers so you can make sure you see all the attractions Chicago has to offer.

How will you get around after your move to Chicago? Chicago’s public transit system operates 24/7 - it's one of only two in the country that offer this service!

Let’s take a look at what makes Chicago a great place to call home!

  • You can visit the world’s largest library after moving to Chicago! The Harold Washington Library is ten stories of fun with a children’s library, winter garden, and endless resources.
  • There are 21 Fortune 500 companies in the metro area, so there are plenty of job opportunities abounding in Chicago.
  • Chicago has many different neighborhoods and suburbs that comprise the city and metro area. Some neighborhoods to explore are Millennium Park, Little Italy, and Uptown.
  • It doesn’t matter what interests you – from ballet, baseball, history, music, architecture, shopping, to beaches – Chicago has all of the above!
  • The Joffrey Ballet presents both contemporary and classic dance presentations, but if you prefer bases to ballet, you can watch the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.
  • For history buffs, you can visit historical sites and museums all over town. Don’t miss the Field Museum which houses collections in the areas of anthropology, geology, and more! A highlight is the collection of dinosaur skeletons, including Sue, the largest and most complete T-Rex skeleton.
  • You can see concerts, hear local artists, or see Broadway performances at any number of venues in Chicago.
  • Perhaps one of the greatest things about moving to Chicago is the food! Chicago is known for great food, including the iconic dishes of the city. Make sure and try Chicago-style pizza, known for being deep dish and having a chunky sauce. A Chicago-style hot dog is another treat! These are all-beef hot dogs that are served on a poppy seed bun and typically topped with mustard, onions, relish, a dill pickle spear, peppers, tomato, (sometimes) cucumber, and celery salt. They call that “dragged through the garden” style!
