Chicago sits on the shores of Lake Michigan, and according to U.S. News & World Report, your experience living in Chicago will depend on your ZIP code. Each of the metro area’s 77 official community areas brings its own unique personality. The summer’s festivals, fireworks and beach afternoons shift to ice skating, zoo lights and holiday cheer in the winter months – with a diverse mix of a warming spring and a colorful fall in between. Pro sports? There are the Bulls, the White Sox, the Bears, and the Black Hawks, too, all vying for cheers and allegiance. The restaurant scene includes famous hot dog joints like The Wieners Circle and well-known steakhouses, such as Gibson’s Bar & Steakhouse. Chicago has all the offerings you’d expect from a major city: world-class museums, vibrant shopping districts and ample nightlife venues, just to name a few.

Savannah is on the upper northeast coast of Georgia, just across the South Carolina state line. Hilton Head is nearby and Tybee Island, on the Atlantic, is even closer. Named a “Top Ten Cities of the United States,” Savannah is rich with history, haunting natural beauty and majestic waterways and features a lively art and dining scene, varied neighborhoods and laid-back lifestyle.
Savannah’s cost of living index is below the national average and that of many nearby cities including Charleston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Jacksonville and Greenville. Savannah is a nature-lover’s paradise. From winding rivers and vast marshland to sprawling parks lined with magnificent live oak trees draped in Spanish moss, the city’s outdoor landscape is simply breathtaking.
There are numerous ways to take advantage of Savannah’s outdoor beauty, whether you enjoy fishing, lounging at the beach, kayaking, hiking, biking or simply strolling through quaint squares. And of course, there is also the favorite pastime of porch sitting (and drinking).
