About Chicago, IL

 Chicago is the most populous city in the state of Illinois, as well as the third most populous city in the country - it is home to more than 2.5 million people, while almost ten million reside in its metro area. Chicago was named after a certain type of garlic that used to be abundant in the area. Officially incorporated as a city in 1837, Chicago today is an internationally recognized center for commerce, finance, industry, technology, transportation, and telecommunications.
Chicago has a humid continental climate. It experiences four distinct seasons with warm and hot summers and cold, snowy winters. Daily average temperatures in July usually revolve around 76 degrees, while January average highs are just above the freezing point. If you are moving to Chicago from a warmer area, be prepared for a big change. 

Places to Live in Chicago, IL

 Have you already found your new home in Chicago? If not, it is high time you start thinking about it. Every neighborhood of the city brings something different, and choosing the right one for yourself can be a daunting task. That is why we at State to State Movers have decided to make things a little easier for you and put together this list of the best places to live in Chicago, IL:
Near North Side. This area is comprised of a handful of smaller neighborhoods. However, the whole Near North Side boasts a high quality of life. Residents of this part of the city make a lot of money, but the costs of living are high to say the least.
Lincoln Park. Another high-end neighborhood, Lincoln Park boasts even higher quality of life than Near North Side. Yes, the same goes for the costs of living. However, the area has quite a bit to offer - it is home to a handful of parks, a zoo, and a great nature museum.
Lake View. Far more affordable than the previous two, Lake View has the sixth most amenities per capita in Chicago. The quality of life and cost of living vary throughout the neighborhood, but overall, it is quite affordable, peaceful, and welcoming.
North Center. Low crime rate, great grade schools, high high school graduation rates… This area is perfect for raising a family. Although, it is pretty great if you are moving to Chicago on your own as well. Whether you are looking for a 100,000 studio or for a 1,500,000 house - you can find it here.
