The list of the nation’s most expensive places to live don’t include Chicago because Chiacgo is able to offer everything world-class cities from all over the world offer, but at an affordable price. Living in Chicago is not only affordable, but it is a quality of life unlike any other, with cultural offerings in abundance, ease of transportation, parks and recreation, excellent job opportunities, and some of the best shopping and dining on the globe.
Meghan Risch, vice president of Choose Chicago, says that there are a number of reasons why Chicago is an ideal place to call home. “We have the best downtown, the best meeting space in America, the tallest building in America, the best restaurants in America, the best theatre and sporting events in America—the list goes on. People come from all over the world to visit the city, why not live here? Not only is Chicago racking up world-class accolades, but you just won't find a friendlier, more liveable big city. It's this truly unique mix of global attractions and local charm that make Chicago second to none.”
