Happy holidays – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and whatever other holiday you are celebrating this year! As I wrote in my last post, one of the best things about living in Chicago is the holiday season. From the fresh snow that always falls (it might make driving more difficult but it certainly looks beautiful) to the fantastic shopping on Michigan Avenue, a visit to Chicago during the month of December is more than enough to make anyone want to invest in their very own piece of Chicago real estate.
Of course, the Midwestern winter does have its downside, but the magic of the holiday season in Chicago is enough to help anyone forget subzero temperatures. In fact, when covered in fluffy snow, the city’s always-stunning architecture is transformed into a true winter wonderland. Furthermore, there are plenty of indoor activities to keep the winter season interesting, from dining at one of Chicago’s many world class restaurants to simply enjoying the well-designed interior of your Chicago home (or future home, if you are planning on relocating to a new Chicago condo).
Last but not least, since it is almost the New Year, next week this Chicago real estate blog will be featuring a round up of the best posts of 2009, as well as upcoming news, topics, and other information that is helpful for anyone planning on purchasing Chicago real estate in the coming year.
