What Chicago Has to Offer
Before your San Francisco to Chicago move, we thought we would give you some useful bits of advice about your future city.
Chicago is known as the windy city. Although many people believe that this is because of the fierce winds from Lake Michigan, this is not entirely true. Chicago’s climate is continental, with extremely cold winters and hot summers. Winter runs for late November to early March; spring has different temperature changes and runs from mid-March to May. June to August is the hot and humid summertime, which features thunderstorms. The beginning of autumn in September can still be hot, with temperatures decreasing until wintery November.
Jobs in Chicago are fairly easy to come by: it has an unemployment rate of 4.3% which sits ever-so-slightly below the national rate of 4.4%. Additionally, expect to be paid a slightly higher hourly wage than the national average: Chicago’s average hourly wage is $26.76, compared to the national average of $24.98.
Things to do in Chicago
Make sure you leave enough free time in your day to explore all the Chicago has to offer in terms of attractions and things to do. If you love being by the water you will love Chicago’s cruises, sailing and water tours. The art scene is thriving in this city, with endless theater shows and musicals to please your inner artist.
