Moving to Illinois?

Illinois, located almost smack dab in the heart of America, has long been thought of as the perfect example of American life. From its all-American feel to its Midwestern appeal, Illinois has been the home to three U.S. presidents and is currently the fifth most populated state in the U.S.

With a major metropolitan area in Chicago and its prime location on Lake Michigan, Chicago has been one of the key U.S. trade cities since its inception in 1818 and is often referred to as the “Second City” with New York being the first. But in addition to Chicago, Illinois is home to small towns and suburbs alike that are simultaneously both culturally diverse and rich in Americana.

If you’re moving to Illinois, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

Things to Know When Moving to Illinois

Climate-Icon

Illinois Climate

Illinois has a climate that varies substantially, depending on your location in the state. Because the northern portion of the state (near Wisconsin) and the southern portion (near Kentucky and Missouri) are separated by over 400 miles, the climate tends to shift. Also, the location of Illinois in the central part of the country tends to see many differentiating weather patterns and colliding fronts that create many thunderstorms and tornadoes. Winters in Illinois tend to be cold, ranging from around 27 to 41 degrees in December and January. However, summers tend to be hot and humid and temperatures can often reach into the low-to-mid-90s. In Chicago, the wind coming off of Lake Michigan often swirls to create blinding snowstorms in the winter and extremely low wind chills.
