Chicago, on Lake Michigan in Illinois, is among the largest cities in the U.S. Famed for its bold architecture, it has a skyline punctuated by skyscrapers.
The Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park and the Willis Tower may blow many visitors away, but for those who live in the Windy City, the landmarks often become second thoughts.
The summer's festivals, fireworks and beach afternoons shift to ice skating, zoo lights and holiday cheer in the winter months –
with a diverse mix of a warming spring and a colorful fall in between. The expansive Museum Campus is second to none,
the beloved Cubbies never fail to entertain and the various festivals are seemingly never-ending.
A major perk for many living in Chicago is the ease of getting around without a car.
Parking and traffic in Chicago are usually difficult, so many residents opt out of car ownership.
The Chicago Transit Authority's L trains travel north, south, east and west, and can get riders almost anywhere they need to go.
The CTA's buses work in a similar fashion.
The Metra train system connects downtown Chicago with suburbs to the north, west and south, making it easy for those who opt to live outside the city proper to commute in.
Taxis and Ubers are also popular.
Many who aren't taking the trains often choose to bike.
Cycling is easy in the Windy City, as most of the streets have bike lanes, and Divvy rental bike stations allow riders to get from place to place without their own set of wheels.
Popular for good reasons, these are the 10 best places to live in all of Chicago:
1. Lincoln Square.
3. Lincoln Park.
4. Edison Park.
5. Near South Side.
6. Hyde Park.
7. Wicker Park.
8. Portage Park.
10. Logan Square.

Driving Downtown - Hartford 4K - Connecticut USA
Driving Downtown Streets - Main Street - Hartford Connecticut USA - Episode 73.
Starting Point: .
Hartford is the capital of Connecticut and the historic seat of Hartford County until Connecticut disbanded county government in 1960. As of the 2010 Census, Hartford's population was 124,775, making it Connecticut's third-largest city after the coastal cities of Bridgeport and New Haven. Census Bureau estimates since then have indicated Hartford's subsequent fall to fourth place statewide as a result of sustained population growth in the coastal city of Stamford.
Nicknamed the Insurance Capital of the World, Hartford houses many insurance company headquarters, and insurance remains the region's major industry. Founded in 1637, Hartford is among the oldest cities in the United States. Hartford is home to the nation's oldest public art museum, the Wadsworth Atheneum; the oldest publicly funded park, Bushnell Park; the oldest continuously published newspaper, The Hartford Courant; the second-oldest secondary school, Hartford Public; Trinity College, an elite, private liberal arts college, and the Mark Twain House where the author wrote his most famous works and raised his family, among other historically significant attractions. In 1868, resident Mark Twain wrote, Of all the beautiful towns it has been my fortune to see this is the chief.
Following the American Civil War, Hartford was the richest city in the United States for several decades. Today, Hartford is one of the poorest cities in the nation with 3 out of every 10 families living below the poverty line. In sharp contrast, the Hartford metropolitan area is ranked 32nd of 318 metropolitan areas in total economic production and 7th out of 280 metropolitan statistical areas in per capita income. Highlighting the socio-economic disparity between Hartford and its suburbs, 83% of Hartford's jobs are filled by commuters from neighboring towns who earn over $80,000, while 75% of Hartford residents who commute to work in other towns earn just $40,000.
Hartford is the historic international center of the insurance industry, with companies such as Aetna, Conning & Company, The Hartford, The Phoenix Companies, UnitedHealthcare and Hartford Steam Boiler based in the city, and companies such as Travelers and Lincoln National Corporation having major operations in the city. The city is also home to the corporate headquarters of U.S. Fire Arms and United Technologies.
From the 19th century until the mid-20th century, Hartford was a major manufacturing city. During the Industrial Revolution into the mid-20th century, the Connecticut River Valley cities produced many major precision manufacturing innovations. Among these was Hartford's pioneer bicycle (and later) automobile maker Pope. As in nearly all former Northern manufacturing cities, many factories have been closed, relocated, or reduced operations.
Aetna and the Hartford Financial Services Group, both Fortune 100 companies, are headquartered in Hartford. Travelers Insurance has its largest national employment center and historical headquarters in the city. CIGNA insurance is headquartered in the region with a presence in Hartford and its suburb Bloomfield. United Health Insurance has a significant presence in the city.
Hartford is a center for medical care, research, and education. Within Hartford itself the city includes Hartford Hospital, The Institute of Living, Connecticut Children's Medical Center, and Saint Francis Hospital & Medical Center (which merged in 1990 with Mount Sinai Hospital).

Find interesting architecture and a huge merchandise selection at Macy's (formerly Marshall Field's, the original store) on State Street.

The street, crowded with upscale malls (Water Tower Place, 900 North Michigan Avenue, The Shops at North Bridge), fashionable boutiques and big name stores such as Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Nordstroms, is also a people-watching paradise.

Look out for Wrigley Field and other sports-related memorabilia and Al Capone themed souvenirs, particularly clothes and sportswear. Music CDs, such as jazz and blues, are also popular. As for food, pick up some Italian Beef, deep dish/stuffed pizza, Garret's Popcorn and Chicago-style hot dogs.
