Chicago is a top choice for recreation, work, education, and real estate. Each year thousands of people choose to converge on the Second City, seeking opportunities they feel only Chicago has to offer.
Chicago is nestled along Lake Michigan and those unfamiliar with this Great Lake may mistake it for an ocean. Ocean or not, Lake Michigan offers miles and miles of pristine beaches. Although temperatures do not hold up for year round use, many Chicagoans find fun and frolic at the beaches during the summer months well until the cool breezes of early autumn.
Recreation is great but we all must get back to reality and go to work. Many top companies are headquartered in Chicago, including Groupon, Walgreens, and United Airlines. Chicago has thousands of employers, but for those who choose to work for themselves, the opportunities are also limitless. Job seekers find Chicago extremely resourceful for career opportunities at many of these and other well-known firms.
If you’re traveling to Chicago on business, there are working solutions if you need a temporary office space. Co-working facilities are available all over the city and even if you are not a Michigan Avenue executive, you can feel like one when you rent spaces there, at River North, or at any number of prestigious corporate addresses.
Chicago is well over one hundred years old and therefore, has had an opportunity to build a fine reputation for having some of the best higher learning institutions in the country, if not the world. Let’s hear it for the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, DePaul University, and Loyola University. All are old name institutions. Yet this is not an exhaustive list, as many more exist, as well as younger, well-known names.
Graduates from these fine institutions love Davinci’s Meeting Rooms as they are a true win-win for start-ups. Start your business and be well respected without the hefty price tag office rent tends to run in the Windy City. Who knows, the next Groupon may already be renting one of the short- or long-term office spaces.
