Why will you love living in Chicago? 
Chicago can be described as a multicultural city that thrives on the diversity of its 77 neighborhoods, and it's well-known for shopping, culture, attractions, food, entertainment, and nightlife. Chicago is the place to be in all seasons, and it’s no surprise that it was voted “Best Big City in the U.S.” five years in a row by Condé Nast Readers’ Choice Award. Enjoy Chicago’s world-class beaches and outdoor dining in the summer and long walks through the many historic parks and lakefront trails in the fall. During the winter, there are plenty of activities including ice skating and holiday markets, and with the spring comes not only flowers, but the return of the city’s vibrant festivals and cultural events. All year, sports enthusiasts can cheer for the Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, Cubs, or Fire.
