One of the many things we love about living in Chicago is how we combine all-American Midwestern charm with a global mentality and cosmopolitan lifestyle. And of course, the amazing real estate opportunities certainly don't hurt either! Here are some of the reasons that Chicago is one of the jewels in the United States' multi-cultural crown.
Two Major Airports (And Many Other Options)
Of course, Chicago is served by O'Hare (one of the world's busiest!) and Midway airports, which connect the city with the rest of the world. Plus there are a number of regional airports within a short drive, along with Union Station if you'd prefer to reach the rest of the U.S. by train.
Chicago is the diplomatic hub of the Midwest, with embassies and consulates from a variety of countries represented, along with the Council on Global Affairs and a number of other international organizations.
World Class Museums.
The Field Museum, the Art Institute, the Museum of Science and Industry, Shedd Aquarium, Alder Planetarium, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and more small niche museums only begin to cover the amount of ways to experience art and culture in the Second City.
Major global corporations call the Windy City home, and an even larger number have their U.S. offices or a significant presence in Chicago, making this a place that many professionals from a number of countries call home.
World Class Education.
Some of the world's leading universities are situated in the city, including the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Loyola University, Depaul University, Columbia University, and more. Chicago is an ideal place for students of all kinds, from undergraduates beginning their journey in higher education to skilled business leaders aiming for advanced degrees.
Foodies will enjoy the chance to sample an incredible variety of cuisines from around the world without leaving their home city.
Multicultural Music Scene.
Whether you prefer opera and the symphony, stadium concerts featuring international superstars, or intimate performances from up and coming musicians (or any and all of the above), there's something for you in Chicago.
