Check out 10 reasons why Chicagoans are the best around. Scroll on for all the details.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. We're very welcoming.
Chicagoans are always happy to meet a visitor. Whether it's your first time or millionth, we're happy you chose to come.
2. We're willing to give directions.
Not a day goes by that there isn't someone in the loop or on a train asking for directions, so we're the best people for being willing to help. Most of the time, they are looking for Museum Campus or trying to clarify which side of the platform to stand on.
3. We're LGBTQ-friendly.
PRIDE is a big deal in the city, and we even have one of the best LGBTQ festivals and parades in the nation to prove it. This liberal city is a safe haven for people from all backgrounds.
4. We're joyful.
It's hard not to be happy when you live in one of the best cities in the world. Each day, the streets are filled with music, laughter, and cheerful greetings.
5. We won't judge you for having one more.
Whether it's one more pizza slice or just one more french fry, Chicagoans will be the last to judge you for overeating. We know our food is just too good, and we've got the extra pounds to show for it.
6. We're loyal.
Chicagoans love their city, and they are especially loyal to their sports teams. Baseball is the most split with a good portion of the city rooting for the Cubs while die-hards on the south side cheer for the White Sox.
7. We'll always drink with you.
You'll never drink alone here. Bars are open late and there's always someone in them (other than the bartender). This is a good way to meet some of our best people.
8. We know the best brews.
Drink with a Chicago resident and they'll likely be able to tell you the best beer to get. Leave Bud and Corona out of it and stick to some tried and true Chicago favorites.
9. We come together to support human rights.
Chicago is super progressive and our citizens are known to take to the streets to express their opinions. From Black Lives Matter marches to those aimed at promoting women's rights and the importance of science, we're a loud crowd.
10. We eat local.
We may live in the city, but Chicagoans know that the best eats are the freshest eats. You'll often find us at farmers markets or farm-to-table restaurants supporting our local businesses.
