About Chicago, Illinois

Chicago is the largest and most populous city in the U.S. state of Illinois. With over 2.7 million residents, it is also the third-most populous city in the country.

St. Louis is both economic and cultural center of the Greater St. Louis area (2,916,447 people) and thus one of the most important cities there, but Chicago is the center of the Chicago metropolitan area which counts around 10 million residents, so it’s quite clear that it is incomparably more important, boasts more amenities and offers a higher quality of life to the people who call it home. Luckily, you too will become one of them soon and without any trouble, if you choose State to State Movers to help you move there.
