Local Atmosphere: we're in chicago, right in the loop, at the center of a lot of things, so take that for what you will

Local Atmosphere: Chicago is a big city that is definitely worth visiting. It is beautiful and spacious, the architecture is great and the public transportation is on par with what someone should expect from such an urban area. I am told that it has one of the lowest costs of living (in regards to city living). The food is great, to the point of having an annual "Taste of Chicago" event where citizens and visitors are able to sample some of the city's cuisine. There are plenty of sightseeing attractions, and enough shopping and ways to spend money to satisfy most anyone's desire to spend.

Local Atmosphere: Beautiful location in Chicago near many museums/restaurants/etc.

Local Atmosphere: It's in the middle of nowhere and there are just buildings around the area, so I would have to rate poorly on this one.
