Chicago is good because the weather is always changing and that makes it interesting. Although hit by the economy like the rest of the country, Chicago still has a lot of job and business opportunities. It is located on the great lakes in center of the country. This is good for commerce and leisure.
I've lived here for 30 years and I don't like it. If my family wasn't here I would have been gone a long time ago. It's very expensive. It's cold from Nov- April. Lots of traffic, the most corrupt politicians in the country. Did I day it's cold and expensive? I could go on all day. It is a beautiful city with great architecture, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife.
I love Chicago. It is nice by the beach during the summer and during the winter it is nice to go play in the snow and sit at home with the fireplace with some hot chocolate. It is also fun for little kids to go sledding. We have really good sports teams and it is so fun to go and watch them. THE BLACK HAWKS WON THE STANLEY CUP!!!!!!!!! It does get really cold in the winter though, but it's not too bad. There is also a lot of things to do and places to go. There is also a lot of good restraunts and stores. There is also many places that are unique to Chicago. Chicago is awesome.
