More People Left Illinois In 2017 Than Any Other State And Here’s What That Means
The numbers are in, and everyone is talking about how Illinois has become American’s least popular state. There’s no reason to fret though. With fewer people living in Illinois, there are more opportunities for the rest of us now.
Don’t look at this max exodus as a bad thing. Since when was a little more elbow room something to complain about? Scroll on for eight things we have to look forward to.
1. Less traffic
Fewer people in Illinois means fewer cars, which could result if fewer traffic jams, fender benders, and other annoying road incidents. Get used to enjoying the open road when you travel the state.
2. Shorter lines at popular attractions
From amusement parks to museums, lines across the state will dissipate as people leave. This means you get in quicker and get to experience the activities sooner.
Same goes for the fair. No more long lines for food, rides, and games.
3. Better chances for concert tickets
Don't you hate when tickets for your favorite band sell out immediately? With less competition, you'll be more likely to score those dream tickets with ease.
4. More homes
As people leave the state, they leave their homes behind, making it a great time to buy as some are desperate to be relieved of their abodes. This could be the chance you've been waiting for to upgrade your living conditions.
You may even be able to go for a gigantic upgrade and find yourself in a high-rise condo with epic views.
5. Fewer photo bombs
The last thing anyone wants when trying to take a photo of a beautiful place is a bunch of people wandering around in the shot. It can be impossible sometimes to truly shoot something amazing, but with fewer people, those dreams could come true too.
You may even get a chance one day to take a photo of this with no one around.
6. More job opportunities
The job market is tough, and depending on your field, it can also be incredibly competitive. With fewer people living here, your chances of being a professor, librarian, or any other dream job slightly increase.
7. Fewer carbon emissions
This may not seem important, but with fewer people in Illinois, we'll put out less carbon and have cleaner air in the long wrong. With each new family or individual to move away, you can breath a big whopping sigh of relief.
8. More community
Many cities in Illinois are so big, it can be hard to find your people. It is in the smaller communities that true connections are made, and we'll only see more and more of that as fewer people inhabit the state.
