What is Chicago like?

Chicago is one of the largest cities in the United States and it is the biggest city in Illinois. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago and its surrounding suburbs have plenty of rental properties available.

Lakefront properties offer amazing views, and those who enjoy a good neighborhood feel will find that there are plenty of options in Chicago.

World class restaurants such as Spiaggia, Charlie Trotter’s and Everest punctuate the dining scene, and shopping is abundant for those near Water Tower Place or Michigan Avenue. The cultural scene is top-notch, and everything is available—from Indian dance companies to a fine collection of museums and art galleries. People come from all around to enjoy festivals such as "The Taste of Chicago" and "Celtic Fest" each year. Chicago is also home to O’Hare International Airport—one of the busiest in the world. Whether you want to take a trip to the zoo, go to the theatre or enjoy the nightlife, this is a city that has a little something for everyone.
