You often hear people say how much they enjoy living in Chicago—in the summer at least—and much of that attraction and desirability stems from the city’s 77 individual neighborhoods that all have something unique to offer. Whether its the individual history behind each neighborhood or the arts, culture, dining, and nightlife that helps define each location, few will argue the heart and soul of the Windy City lies within the many different communities that are scattered around town. If you’re looking to live in the heart of the city, Chicago’s downtown neighborhoods include the Loop, West Loop, South Loop, River North, Streeterville, the New Eastside, and the Gold Coast. If more of a quiet, neighborhood-like feel is more your speed, try giving a few north side neighborhoods like Lakeview, Lincoln Park, or Roscoe Village a try.
For some, a unique combination of both is the only way to go, which is what many of Chicago’s west side neighborhoods feature like Bucktown, Wicker Park, West Town, or River West. Regardless of your lifestyle or living preferences, though, the beauty about calling Chicago home is that there really is a location that’s sure to fit all your needs and wants in a new place to live.
