At Highland Woods in Elgin, Illinois, residents love living a short drive or train ride from Chicago. Not only do the city and surrounding suburbs offer tons of job opportunities, but cultural experiences are top notch. And you don’t have to take our word for it—Conde Naste Traveler just rated it the best city in the US for the second year in a row. With tons of museums, world-class dining, entertainment, and sports teams galore in Chicago, your weekends and staycations can be top notch when you live so close.
The Reader’s Choice-style poll garnered hundreds of thousands of votes, and Chicago rose to the top. Here are the reasons they cite:
- Magnificent architecture
- Stunning museums
- Brilliant chefs
- Massive brewing scene
Conde Naste sums it up best: “Scratch the surface in the Loop and on the Gold Coast, then go deeper into the city’s 77 neighborhoods, where you’ll find cutting-edge restaurants (like Parachute), chilled out corner bars (Sportsman’s Club), and some of the most pleasant people you’ll find anywhere. It’s no wonder Chicago tops this list again.”
