Renting a Cheap Apartment in Chicago

The heart of the heartland, Chicago is a Midwestern metropolis with international flavor. A diverse and friendly population, thriving tourist economy, vibrant art and theatre scene, amazing restaurants and strong athletic traditions all combine to make Chi-town much beloved. Chowing down a Chicago-style hot dog at Wrigley Field is on many baseball fans’ life lists, and this is considered one of the best cities for being a sports fan in the U.S. You could roam the city trying all of the pizza joints for weeks ...unless you got distracted by all the other culinary offerings, from street carts to super swanky A-list restaurants. The range of neighborhoods here is equally large, though many residential areas are in proximity to Lake Michigan. A well-diversified economy with strong finance, science and engineering sectors creates many good jobs. And we’d be remiss not to mention the city’s affinity for politics, especially since current U.S. President Barack Obama calls Chicago home. He was a community organizer here early in his career.
