High murder rate
Horrible public schools
High cost of living
And Jay Cutler

Heck, what are you waiting for?


Depends on where you live in Chicago. The suburbs are fantastic. We lived in Crystal Lake (northwest suburb) and the school district was one of the top 5 in the country. But, we paid for it in taxes. My property taxes on my house were over $15k per year (on a $500k house).

Some people like cold weather.

IMO, it's all about culture. I put 36 years in in the South. Couldn't be happier with my move to NYC. I'm loving life. Life is all about making it exciting and worth every minute. Chicago offers so much more
than Charlotte.




It depends on the things that you enjoy doing.

When is the last time you took your girl for a boat ride to a restaurant, had dinner, anchored up in the inlet and watched the moon rise?

All about priorities.

I don't like boats. What's your point though? You can do that at Lake Norman or in Chicago.

I don't think the great lakes have inlets.
