Chicago Apartments for Rent
From baseball to brownstones, politics to parks, Chicago is America’s “most American big city.” No matter whether your passion is architecture, history, sailing or sports, you’ll find your perfect apartment here in the Windy City.
Chicago sits on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan, the fifth largest body of fresh water in the world. The lake is the focus for the city’s 29 public beaches, boating and water sport opportunities, and is the backdrop for one of the most spectacular views in the world: looking out over the water at sunset from the top of the John Hancock building on the city’s Magnificent Mile. With sweeping views spanning four states. Lake Michigan is not only beautiful, but it actually helps moderate Chicago’s climate, making waterfront neighborhoods slightly warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
Next time you sing, “buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks,” remember that Chicago is the home of this famous baseball snack, selling its first box here in 1893. Of course, Chicagoans take baseball – and all their sports – very seriously. Da Bears, da Cubs, da Bulls, Wrigley Field, the White Sox, the Black Hawks and Niketown; if you’re into sports, can it get any better than this?
Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, proud to be a multicultural city that thrives on the harmony and diversity of its 77 distinct neighborhoods. From Lincoln Square and Uptown to Hyde Park, Jackson Park and the Southeast side, the city’s neighborhoods are a melting pot of backgrounds, food and tradition. When you begin your Chicago apartment search, you’ll easily find a neighborhood that is perfect for you.
Residents here benefit from a number of nearby major colleges and universities, including University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Loyola University, DePaul University and University of Illinois Chicago.
