Chicago Makes List of Top 10 Cities to Move To

June 12, 2012

Chicago SkylineAmericans are always on the move. While the process of moving to another state is often stressful, living in the area of your dreams makes the whole process worthwhile. So where are Americans moving to this year? The 10 most popular cities to move to between January and March of this year has been released by the American Moving and Storage Association.

Coming in at number 10 on the list is none other than Sweet Home Chicago. Our amazing city offers everything singles and families alike desire from the beautiful, rolling lakefront to the Magnificent Mile. Diversity is a key element to living in the Chicagoland area. Distinct neighborhoods are a highlight of the city’s multicultural backbone. The Chicago nightlife is second to none when it comes to entertainment as there is always an abundance of shows and hotspots to visit on any given night. From the museums to the theater district, the sports teams to the food, it is no surprise that Chicago ranks in the top ten of cities Americans are moving to.

Yet, the Windy City (where a one bedroom averages $1,423 per month) is only number 10. So what are the other hot destinations Americans have been migrating to so far this year? Here is the rest of the list:

  1. Washington, D.C.
  2. Phoenix-Mesa
  3. Houston
  4. Seattle
  5. Atlanta
  6. Dallas Fort-Worth
  7. San Diego
  8. Denver
  9. Los Angeles-Long Beach

The top nine cities are all great and offer unique aspects, but do they really beat Chicago when it comes to offering the best of all worlds?

Feel free to share your thoughts on why Chicago is the best city to move to.
