Chicago - City Guide


Moving to Chicago

So you’re thinking about moving to Chicago. There are a few factors you might want to consider before you go online and find your dream home. One of the largest factors to consider when moving to Chicago depends largely on whether or not you’re a sports nut. Are you a Cubs fan or a White Sox fan? If you like wearing your Cubs jersey outdoors without having angry Sox fans throwing snowballs at you, then living on the south side might be a bad idea. Or, if you’re a Bears fan, do you want to live within walking distance of the newly renovated Soldier Field? Maybe its all about basketball for you. I realize that Michael Jordan doesn’t play anymore, but that wouldn’t stop me from watching a game at the United Center (just happens to be the largest arena in the United States) with those lovable Luvabulls Dancers! The United Center is also home to the Chicago Blackhawks (if hockey is your forte). If sports is not a factor you still have some heavy decisions. For example, do you prefer a waterside view? Do you like high rise apartments? Are you looking for something rural like Vernon Hills or Buffalo Grove? Either way, HireAHelper is the best place to book your load, unload or full service move. Seriously, comparing moving quotes and booking movers in Chicago has never been this easy. And if you’re making The Windy City your new home, here are some tips on where to eat, shop, and have fun.

The Windy City: A Guide to Life in Chicago, Illinois

Dining in Chicago

When you think of the words ‘Chicago’ and ‘Food’, what is the first thing that comes to mind? That’s right, deep-dish pizza! Back in the 1940’s deep-dish just meant a deep round pan for the dough and a process called “parbaking.” Now you can find a variety of styles, including my personal favorite: the pizza-pot-pie (served upside-down!) at Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder.

Of course not everyone likes pizza, if that’s the case you can take a walk down Michigan Ave. and check out the famous Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop where you get free samples as soon as you walk in! Ghirardelli’s is known for their amazing hot chocolate - a necessity in the windy city during the colder months. And for chocolate fanatics, they sell most of their merchandise in bulk, so bring a cart and your sweet-tooth.

Transportation - How to get where you’re going in Chicago

Getting around in Chicago can be tricky if you don’t plan ahead. Of course you could take a taxi anywhere, or hire a limousine just like any other city. But maybe you like to keep it green, in which case a pedicab or carriage ride would be a better, albeit more time consuming, mode of transportation. If time IS an issue, you could always hop on the Amtrak/Metra trains (known as the L train by locals) that travel all over the city above and below ground. The shoreline taxi is a great way to get around if you just want to see the sights, running from Willis tower to Michigan Avenue and on to Navy Pier. Whichever mode you choose, always allow for extra time in case your stop and destination require a bit of walking on either end.

Shopping in Chicago

You can’t talk about shopping in Chicago and not start with “The Magnificent Mile.” Otherwise known as Michigan avenue, this 8 block stretch of shopping paradise will leave your wallet empty and your arms full if you aren’t careful. With more than 460 stores and roughly 250 restaurants you’ll want to leave your wife and credit cards at home to avoid a severe case of buyers remorse the morning after. Of course Michigan Avenue is just one of many hot-spots in the windy city but if you want to shop a famous location, there is one more place to go, Macy’s on State street - one of the largest department stores in the world as well as a city landmark. Fun Fact: State street is on what Chicagoans call “The Loop” also known as “that great street” in a song made famous by Mr. Frank Sinatra.

Must-See Places in Chicago

Chicago has one of the worlds most beautiful skylines. With three of America’s tallest buildings and a two-page list of other notable architectural must-see’s, it would take far longer to list all of the sights here than it would to take a tour of the city and see them all yourself. But if you are curious, here are the top four towers with a little bonus at the end.

  • Sears Tower - Now called the Willis tower, is North America’s Tallest building, and the 9th tallest in the world.
  • Trump Tower - Completed in 2009, it is the second tallest tower in North America and ranks 11th tallest in the world.
  • Aon Center - Originally known as the Standard Oil building, it ranks as the 4th tallest in America and was originally faced with marble. After a few years the Windy City earned it’s name with wind gusts that started blowing the marble off the building. The marble was completely replaced with granite.
  • John Hancock Center - The 6th tallest tower in America with more than 700 condominiums, famously known for its original architecture featuring what is called X-bracing, once you see it you won’t forget it.
  • The Chicago Spire - Construction halted in 2009 due to finances, but this building was scheduled to be completed in 2012 and hoped to become the 2nd tallest in the world with 150 floors.

No matter what brings you to Chicago, there’s plenty to eat, see, and experience. And if you’re moving to Chicago, lets say, from Las Vegas, HireAHelper can help you find the right help to load you up. Or if your move is taking you out of Chicago and down south to Texas, you can even compare and book Houston movers, without ever leaving our site.
