My aunt lived in chicago and i have visited there like 2 weeks at a time..I think they have some pretty places there..I went to a lot of musiums there, and a lot of historicial places..I also went up to the top of Sears Tower, they have a pretty lake that runs through their city, a lake or a river, not sure what you call it..It is a very large city as you probably know that since your husband is from chicago.My aunt went there as a young bride and she liked it a lot...They have a very huge airport 'O hare"...I noticed that things there were quite different from Texas that is where i am ...The houses have basements, and sidewalks, and you put your trash in the back of your house because they have an alley and thats where the trash man picks up your trash..It is just like any other city it has both good and bad places, pretty places and not so pretty places just like it is everywhere...If you do not mind a big city then you will probably like it..The big city would not bother me since i am in a very big city myself " Houston Texas, you can;t get much bigger than that, but i like the city...i would try it for sure but if you don't like it you can always come home..It was in the summer when i always went and what i saw of it i liked it..If you do not mind change then you will probably like it there.I am the type that has to stay close to my home land and i do not make change so easy but i am a little weird when it comes to moving me out of my spot, so you cannot go by me....I think you will like it, there is a lot of things to see and places to go there...

Lake Michigan, its actually a great place to go in the summer. Chicago has a lot of public beaches on Lake Michigan always full of people when the weather is nicer.

I have never lived in Chicago but have visited on business a few times. I found Chicago to be a very friendly city; it is also very beautiful. The winters can be brutal but they have wonderful food to makeup for it. No harm in giving something new a try, if you don't like it you can always move. Don't worry about not having a job, just as long as you have a computer, you have a job. Mylot friends will help you with suggested means of earning a job; they have been very instrumental in helping me earn an online living. Remember, nothing ventured, nothing gained!

I like Chicago in general. What I don't like about Chicago is very cold winters and very hot summers. Speaking about job market, it is relatively good....depends what you are looking for...

I've never been to Chicago but if it was good enough for the Bob Newhart show to be in it must be good. A lot of great Blues music came from the area too so at least you know they have good entertainment. Apart from it being windy that is about all I know about Chicago. Good luck with your decision.

I love Chicago although it is a bit cold right now but that should change relatively soon. I don't live downtown anymore as it can be somwehat crowded but I think Chicago is one of the best cities in the world. Finding a job in Chicago should be relatively easy as many people live in the suburbs and commute to Chicago for jobs every day. For me it would depend on what part of the city you're moving to. I think I'd love downtown but I would miss having some space to stretch out.
