The Windy City, the Second City, the City of the Big Shoulders. Whatever you call it, Chicago has a way of growing on you. It seems like everyone I talk to who has visited the city absolutely loves it. It's the city I still call "home" even though I live in Texas. No, Chicago isn't perfect, but to paraphrase a quote I once heard, the city survived the Great Fire and ended up building the world's most beautiful skyline... because if there's one thing Chicago knows, it's how to punch back.
