Chicago

Welcome to the Windy City! One of the best cities in the world (and my personal fav). Not too big and onverwhelming like New York and not small by any means, just the right amount bustle and chill. It is the city where my family lives, and people do sleep here. I spend a lot of time at my grandmother's house on the Southside and up North in the suburbs(that's where the good shopping is). Chicago is full of great restaurants, attractions, for the family, cool people, and a culture that's second to none. Granted, the weather has a tendency to suck (I haven't completely decided which is worst, intolerable heat like in Florida or intolerable cold). Plus Frank Sinatra made a song about it!

Atlanta

Atlanta might be second favorite city. The atmosphere and energy is completely different from that of Chicago. Atlanta has its own character, its own personality. First of all, its in the south so the culture is completely different. There are confederate flags and and southern drawls, fish fries and megachurches. Alanta has a lot of historical sites and attractions. It is the historic home of Martin Luther King Jr. and they have one of the biggest aquariums in the nation. I think it's a great place to raise a family! They have beautiful home with lots of land and all the amenities (and unfortunately traffic) of a major city.

Toronto

I only visited Toronto once, but it is another big city with a great feel. It is very similar to any major American city ,but also very different. It is in a different country so that brings with it its own characteristics, currency, and culture. French is to Canada what Spanish is to America. There is tons of diversity in Toronto, people from all over the world have made Toronto their home. Toronto is much more liberal than any American city I've been too. There's a certain freedom there, a feeling that all are welcome, an "anything goes-ness" about the place. Race does not hold the same meaning or importance in Toronto as it does in America. There is tolerance there that I haven't experienced anywhere else and it's great!

Toronto has lots of tourist attractions, like any major city. Great shopping and lots of restaurants. I stayed down the street from the University of Toronto while I was there. Toronto has beautiful flowers, friendly people, and an atmosphere like none other. I look forward to going back!
