In the United States, there is a strong cultural sense that the “dream cities” where most people want to live are located on the coasts—usually New York City or Los Angeles. However, the Midwestern city of Chicago has come into its own as a major moving destination.
Many moving companies have seen an increase in the number of people who are moving to Chicago, either locally or through long-distance moving services.
Why people move to Chicago
E-Z Movers has found that there are many reasons people move to Chicago, from the atmosphere to the ample opportunities. The top 10 reasons Chicago movers give are:
1. The cost of living in Chicago is lower than other major metropolitan areas, especially compared to coastal cities.
2. Chicago and its suburbs are located along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan, so Chicago and Skokie movers can enjoy plenty of beach time and water sports.
3. The centralized location of Chicago means that flights to major cities in the U.S. are shorter and more convenient.
4. Chicago has a wide variety of educational options, including two of the top 50 colleges in the country—the University of Chicago was ranked fourth in the nation for 2013.
5. Cultural diversity abounds in Chicago, and everyone is welcome.
