The Chicago Lifestyle
America’s Second City makes an incredible first impression, which is one reason so many medical professionals call it home.
Six of the world’s top 100 tallest buildings are here. So is the famous “form follows function” Chicago School of Architecture, as well as important outdoor works of art by Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Louise Nevelson and many others.
Sports fans will also find much to root for—from baseball’s NL Chicago Cubs and AL White Sox, to the NFL’s Chicago Bears and NBA’s Chicago Bulls, to the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and MLS’s Chicago Fire.
Those who also enjoy their own sports or activities have more than 550 beautiful city parks to choose from, including Lincoln, Jackson, Grant and Washington parks, plus more than 1,000 athletic fields, and paved paths for running, strolling, bicycling and skating. Chicago’s waterfront also offers 26 miles of pristine Lake Michigan beaches.
Food is fantastic in Chicago too, with many world-class restaurants such as Everest, Grace, MK’s, Schwa, Sixteen and Spaggia. Arts and culture also abound with more than 50 local theaters, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, Field Museum of Natural History, Alder Planetarium and Museum of Contemporary Art.
Chicago nightlife is legendary, from dance and music clubs to concert venues, craft breweries and local distilleries, to comedy clubs that launched the likes of Jim Belushi, Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert.
Families will find Chicago’s welcoming neighborhoods and outlying areas offer many beautiful homes in urban, suburban and rural settings. There is an excellent selection of public, private and charter schools from which to choose. Major colleges and universities too, including Columbia, DePaul, Loyola, Northwestern and the University of Chicago. Public transportation is first-rate, with AMTRAK rail service, O’Hare and Midway airports, major highways, plus the Chicago Transit Authority, which serves downtown and 40 suburbs, making it easy to reach Rush University Medical Center from just about anywhere.
