Truly one of the greatest cities in the entire nation. With a total population exceeding 2.9 million inside the city limits alone, multiple cultures and ethnicities, cool-sounding urban, midwestern nasal accents (see ear candy), a rich history, tons of museums, theaters, arcades, the Brookfield Zoo; the best pizza outside of New York City, and probably one of the best city skylines in the United States, Chicago has something to offer to everyone. It is a higher standard of a metropolis that all other American cities strive to be like(and many of them have succeeded in that: see Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta, DC, Denver, Omaha, and Seattle.
Chicago is the ultimate economic, cultural, educational, business, entertainment, industrial, and population center of the Midwest.

Chicago is a good city but most of the people there are really stupid.

One of the most, if not the most, beautiful cities in the US.

Located on the southern tip of Lake Michigan, Chicago has an incredible skyline. Chicago is very culturally diverse and has awesome pizza, interesting museums, beautiful parks, blues clubs, and a strong theatre scene too. All four seasons are enjoyed in Chicago, but the summers can get intencely hot and the winters bone-chilling cold. The "hawk" (forceful wind) blowing off Lake Michigan in the winter toughens-up the residents there.
