Is downtown chicago safe?

Report as

It is average. I live there. Just be sure to stay in areas with lots of people. In areas where it is empty, there are a lot of people getting mugged. Just be careful and make sure there are other people around.

The Loop (the financial district) is as safe as any other big city. As is the museum campus, Lincoln Park, or Michigan Avenue.

Depends on what you want out of a city.

How is lake michigan?

Cold. You can swim in it during the summer. The fishing is good if you know where to look. Only experienced boaters should be out there. The weather can turn on you in short order. The waves are not as bad as the open ocean, but it comes close.

I will earn a degree in a hard education. Would chicago be good, for a grad. gift?
Report as
Sure, if you like city exploring. Architecture, history, museums, theatre, ethnic neighborhoods, and sports.

I really like the arch. in your town.

St Louis is not named after Louis Jolliet. It is named after King Louis XV and his patron saint Louis IX. And yes it is a nice arch.
Report as
And no I don't live there. As a matter of fact I just happen to be visiting St Louis this weekend.

Downtown is safe. I will say it again, downtown is safe, mostly during the day. I live in an outlining neighborhood.

Of course. It's like Paradise. No one ever gets hurt and there are no violent crimes ever because the gun control laws are very strict there.
