They are two very different cities and places. They don't need to be in competition either. Enjoy each one. Two good places. Also, seek past threads containing this info.

SF has hills. Chicago gets real hot in summer and is flat. San Francisco has Alcatraz and Chicago only has 26th and California. So its a roll of the dice.

They're so very different in some aspects.

I'm looking at moving to either SF or Chicago soon. I'm from Michigan and live in Iowa. Leaning towards SF but wonder if I should move to Chicago first, since it's close by

Diversity? Well they both have a lot of foreign born peoples, from many various countries, and diversity in ethnic groups. No majority 'race' in either city. Both have a lot of rich, lot of poor, and a lot of middle class. Both are fairly segregated.

Think of Chicago as a scaled-up San Fran, but colder in winter and warmer in summer.

San Fran is much smaller than Chicago and it has a much larger asian population. I've met former San Fran natives who have moved to the Los Angeles area becuase San Fran was "too cold" and "not enough sun" -- so the weather is relative. If family is important that should definitely be taken into consideration. Chicago has more housing options meaning you can afford to but a condo, home over time. In San Fran, unless you are raking in six fugures the chance of owning anything is slim. Chicago has a friendlier vibe and is a little more real.

theres no comparison. SF may be pretty to look at on postcards, but hands down chicago kicks its butt for a city to choose to live in. why? its easier, cheaper, more fun, better nightlife, far friendlier people, better sports, etc etc etc
