Where to Live
The city is defined by its north, south and west sides, and you'll want to brush up on your baseball (the Cubs play on north side; the White Sox on the south). In the centre, you'll find the Loop and the shopping of the Magnificient Mile. On the north side there's Lincoln Park with its Old Town theatres, or the beaches and ethnic communities of the Far North Side. Historic Bronzeville lies to the south, while the west side's trendy Bucktown and Wicker Park have become popular with artists and graduates. To find a Chicago apartment, visit Chicago.apartments.com, Sublet.com or Chicago.craigslist.org.
The Windy City moniker may have various origins, but it is the city's weather that is most famous. You'll experience all four seasons in Chicago, with wet springs and humid summers tempered by pleasant Lake Michigan breezes. Pack your woollies for its famously frigid winter.
