Chicago is a beautiful city—it has delicious food, beautiful buildings, festivals, and more art and culture than most countries. Thousands of people move here every year, and chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re one of them. And if you’re not, you probably will be by the end of this post. Although we get a bad rep from all the crime you see in the news, here are the Best Neighborhoods In Chicago.
Moveto created this list by researching 67 of its neighborhoods in terms of these criteria:
- Amenities per capita
- Quality of life (cost of living, median home price, median rent, median household income)
- Total crimes
- Violent crimes
- High school graduation rate
Starting off the list of Best Neighborhoods In Chicago is Beverly.Residents in this last neighborhood on our list enjoy one of the highest qualities of life in the city, not only because math says so in our analysis (with the high income and nice homes), but because they just plain do. Homes in this area are some of the oldest in the city and are typically surrounded by large lots and plenty of trees. The area is unique in that it’s one of the only hilly parts of the city and it is relatively secluded and quiet. Overall, a good place to rest your head after working downtown all day, especially if you’re looking for something family-friendly.
