I am in the interviewing process of an exec job with Xport Fitness in Chicago. I would like to find and make some new friends, as well as know about the city life, such as entrainment, public transportation, apartment living. I currently live in Houston. I am 30, single, no kids or wife. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. Will your job be downtown or which suburb? That can make a big difference in terms of where you might want to live.

Chicago is a great city and my favorite parts are along the lakefront which is beautiful.

We have excellent public transportation within most areas of the city and commuter rail lines that go to the suburbs.

Apartment living in the suburbs is going to be pretty similar to what you have in the Houston area. In the city, we have lots of highrise apt buildings and also plenty of vintage 3 to 4 story courtyard type walkup buildings (no elevator) with multiple entrances. Those are often cheaper than highrises. And we have something called 4 plus 1's which are pretty ugly structures built in the 60's or 70's with 4 levels of apartments atop a garage.

There are a lot of people that make the move from Dallas and Houston to Chicago.
