Chicago might not be the capital of Illinois, but it is the state’s largest and most populous city. In fact, it is the third largest city in the country. It is an important international center for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transport. The city has the third largest GDP in the country, and one of the world’s most diverse economies.
Chicago has been nicknamed The “Windy City” for a reason, even though this nickname didn’t originally refer to the city’s climate. Nevertheless, Chicago is somewhat windier than your average American city. The climate here is humid continental, and there are four distinct seasons. Summers are warm, sometimes hot, and humid, while winters are cold and quite snowy. Learn more about the climate of Chicago.
Chicago is a big city, so it should come as no surprise that different areas have completely different vibes, living standards, and most importantly, costs of living. For example, the average rent for an apartment here stands at a little over $1,000 for a studio, but you can easily find one way cheaper (and way more expensive) than that one. A basic utility package will usually run you around $120. An unlimited monthly bus pass costs $100, and once you see how hard it is to find parking here, you’ll realize its worth it. Read the more in-depth review of Chicago’s cost of living.
You will never be bored in Chicago! There is so much to do, see, and experience here. Of course, your favorite attractions and go-to places will vary depending on your preferences and taste, but here are our top favorites that we believe you shouldn’t miss out on:

My first move over seas had me feeling pretty stressed. I asked around for any moving company recommendations, and so a friend of mine suggested I love International Moving. I called them right away, customer service was great. I had so many questions being my first time but the employee was very polite and beyond helpful. Once I had everything set up they came to my home packed everything and unpacked all my belongings in my new home. Everything went by smooth, received no hidden fees and all my belongings came in great condition. 6/21/2016
Decided to spend my spring and some of my summer in Canada without realizing how much I actually need my car to get around a lot easier. Did a couple calls to find a company that does international vehicle shipping. Came across I Love Moving, they gave me a great rate and received my car the same week when I arrived. My car came in great condition! Really appreciate the great service they provided me. 5/28/2016
I was able to get a quote over the phone and all questions and concerns were taken care professionally. The fact that they are willing to work with your budget AND have super helpful, friendly service sold me. I would recommend them to anyone who needs international shipping. The fact that they are willing to work with your budget AND have super helpful, friendly service sold me. My bed frame and marble dresser were two huge pieces I was worried about, but they were carefully handled and delivered to London without a scratch! I would recommend them to anyone who needs international shipping. 6/29/2016
This move was actually not for ourselves but for my grandparents who wanted to move their furniture back to Europe. We were trying to find the best possible company that would be able to help us out for a long distance transport. Most of the moving firms around their local area did not accommodate to international moves so we were very fortunate to have found these guys. We spoke to some representatives over the phone and they were more than willing to explain their moving procedures to us. It seem like these guys definitely knew what they were doing so we were sure to let them manage our move. Will totally use them again in the near future if necessary, totally recommend them. 12/11/2017
Finally got around to giving these guys credit. They helped move some things up to Toronto for a new business. They handled all the paper work when getting through customs. The payment was process was simple. When it comes to moving I always like things to be as simple as possible. Just paid in the beginning of the move & never got hit with any extra fees later on. Everyone was cool & easy to deal with. I definitely appreciate the hard work the movers made & I may end up using them again in the future. 11/19/2016
Shipping by air was fast and like their website stated it actually wasn't too expensive at all. So they were telling the truth there. Had a variety of furniture shipped to Europe and it was there in about 48 hrs. Couldn't believe the speed of it all. Im not the biggest fan of packing ... honestly who is? I had the their moving team handle that part. They did a great job labeling and packing things. The whole experience was fast and not too bad on the wallet at all. 8/03/2016
Its my first time ever living in Europe for a couple months for my study abroad program. I wasn't sure how I had to handle my moving situations, but I Love international helped me through the process, the people they have for customer service explained the process and different shipping packages that I will benefit from the most. Everything was packed well and shipped overseas. They were very easy to work with. Glad I decided to book their services couldn't have gone as well as it did without them! 7/25/2016
My cousin decided to move to paris for a year and reached out to me for help paying for it and finding the right moving company that wouldn't give a crazy rate. I was looking for a quality business and decent rate since I was helping out with part of the payment. Did some research online and saw that I love international had some good feedback form their location in Hells Kitchen. I later saw that they had a location closer to me so we ended up using them. Shipping by air was out of the question.. price was a bit too high but shipping by sea was something we could manage. It was a 1 bedroom apartment and it didn't take the movers much time at all to clean it out and get the boxes loaded up. Everyone was pretty cool over the phone, no complaints about the experience in general. Seems like this business has a lot of experience under their belt. They didn't play that usual game with the price either. Just paid at the start and wasn't hit with any other rates later on. Good stuff! 8/30/2016
These guys are simply the best. I did a move over to Germany and these guys did it all. I had a lot of sensitive belongings and these guys took the time to make sure it was all secure wrapping and boxes. When I received my belongings upon arrival to Germany, I was happy to see they were very secured in boxes. I'm a happy camper, will come back to these guys if I do a move back. 3/03/2017
I found this company through a friend of mine and needed to use their moving services. Just moved out of the Chicago area and into the suburbs. Great company. Fantastic customer service & staff was very accommodating. My move was quick and easy for me, they helped me do everything. I will definitely be referring this company to friends and family. 5/02/2016
Love this company! Shipping to Europe made easy. Everything was done by air freight. Fast and pretty affordable for the speed and service. Movers helped me with some last minute packing as well. They came fully equipped with extra boxes and tape. They picked up all belongs. Left no mess behind. Less than a week later everything arrived over seas without any damage. I really have nothing negative to say all. Everything worked out very well! 5/13/2016
They did a very good job when it came to packing everything up. The packing service they have definitely saved a headache. As for the move. It was a bit challenging deciding between shipping by sea or air. I hate waiting extra time when I don't have to but in the end I decided to ship by Sea because the price is a bit lower. Staff was nice and pretty satisfied with the movers. 8/30/2016
I Love International is such a great company. The stress meter for me was over the roof & having I Love International made my stress level vanish in seconds! The price was affordable. They came & packed my belongs very well. I was impressed. Free boxes & having 30 days free storage! That's insane. I couldn't be anymore happier going through I Love International! I've recommended this company to my family & friends many times. I will defiantly go through them again. 7/21/2016
Great service. Over Seas Shipping with competitive pricing and options on shipping methods. I have european friends that were looking for a business like this. I was happy to help them find it. They took time over the phone to get a feel for budget and time frame of move. I got a long with all the staff. They were quite friendly 6/07/2016
Doing the move to Paris was fastest with air freight option. The estimate was free. So they took time gathering info prior to knowing if I would even go with them. Everything ended working out great and all items were done to door across the ocean in just a couple days! Great service 5/09/2016
Made the move from the states to Europe seamless and stress free. No extra or hidden fees attached on at last minute. No unfortunate surprises. Full service too. Felt great not having to worry about packing stuff up with precision. I simply kicked back and let them handle that part. Movers were very quick and the rates were definitely affordable considering how in depth my move was. 5/21/2016
I wanted to go take a trip out of the country to explore other areas, but I needed help with my belongings. I was referred by a friend so I did more research on my own about them. They have some of the best prices around while offering a friendly crew. The crew arrived on time while shipping all my belongings quickly. Nothing was damaged during the shipping either. When I go back to the US I will use their services again to get everything back. 9/29/2016
Considering the circumstances underlying our move in deadline as well as plane tickets, we knew we had to get started on this move early in order to have time to organize our stuff in the new house. It was going to be a rigorous move and we were all prepared for it, moving our furniture overseas to my grandparents house in Eastern Europe. We had contacted a few international moving companies but all of them seemed to overcharge and provide faulty promises in terms of timing and schedules. After speaking to the representatives from this company however we knew we were in good hands, these guys answered all of our questions and concerns without any difficulties.They provided us with a very fair rate for the entire service and provided a thorough move of all of our furniture. Would totally recommend their services. 11/19/2017
I don't remember how I found this company.. but I'm glad I did !!! They were awesome. The rate I received never changed at all. Most/ almost all moving companies give you a quote that goes up when its time to pay. I paid once in the beginning and didn't have to again. The shipping by plane option was very fast. Took about a day and my stuff was in it's new location across the ocean. Thank you! 8/07/2016
Relocated a loft apt over seas with minimal stress! Chose the FCL moving category - moving by freight boat. Everything was full service and quick. They took all the belongings and transferred them to the departure area. Little over a week later I met the moving group in London and they completely unloaded and unboxed everything at my new spot. They worked hard for every dollar that was spent! THANK YOU!!! 5/11/2016
I'm a realtor, and my clients needed a good moving group that could ship furniture to Canada within a week for a new property that I found for him. I called around and the rates of international moving vary tremendously. I love international has a decent rate, not the most inexpensive but they do offer shipping by air. Which I found many companies don't. With that option the furniture was able to get to Canada in a very short time. Way less than a week... which was exactly what was needed! Thank You! 8/28/2016
Perfect way to pack your apartment into boxes and get it ready to be shipped overseas. I Love International Movers company was the right choice for this task. I was helping my friend and we booked 3 guys and we made a great team working together. I was helping making sure everything is organised right as there were lots of small items that needed careful packing service. This was a stress free relocation that I'd love to share with people who are looking for reliable movers. Thumbs up for I love International Moving! :)) 3/14/2017
Excellent job, crew came on time, worked hard, no breaks, no damage to the furniture, really suggest to hire this company. Great sense of humor and also got the job done efficiently. Also, B was a great help with setting everything up and even when I changed my moving date. Whenever I move again I definitely will be using I Love Moving:) 10/07/2017
Moving itself is a bit stressful when you find businesses that eases the stress you tend to remember them. The experience here was memorable. From the reassuring staff, to the fast hard working movers that barely took a water break. The rates are what you pay for & you're paying for a quality service so it makes sense. The shipping by sea freight option was a little less expensive in my personal case so I went with that. It worked out. No damage was done to any of the fragile items. 5/27/2016
Had to move out my sister to Mexico for the summer. I found this company through a good friend of mine and was very satisfied with their services. Got the estimate the same day and it was very reasonable. They came by at 10am the next morning and helped us pack all of her belongings. We shipped everything by air at a low price & like they had stated, no surprise fees!! Professional staff and also very quick service. 5/13/2016
After doing some research on their website I found out that they do in fact ship boats and jet skis. This was needed for a beach house property in Spain. Was worried that pricing for this sort of task would be very high. After a phone call and discussing some options the Roll on, Roll off shipping method was mentioned. It was claimed to be the less expensive route. After that conversation ended I called a few other spots and did some online research. Everything this company told me over the phone was in fact true. This is the best method for shipping boats. My experience went pretty well and I'm satisfied with choosing this moving place. 5/11/2016
I love International moving proved to be the right decision. Their rates & eager to help staff made it an easy choice. After a couple phone calls & a few comparisons I moved forward with shipping by Sea and full service packing. The movers here hustle. They work quickly & came well prepared to handle most any task I ask them. This is a rock solid company. My experience was worth the payment. 6/11/2016
