The near north and near west side can be great for a young professional. Many factors come into play such as proximity to work, being close to public transportation, night life, etc. I'd be happy to help if you are still looking. Call/Text/Email me any time

This depends on the following:

Where will your internship be?

What type of lifestyle do you prefer? night life, active life?

What type of businesses do you need to have near you?

You see, its not about what area is the best, its more about what area fits your needs the most. You are going to enjoy Chicago in the coming months with all the activities and festivals we have. I truly hope you find the right place and get to enjoy it all. If you need more help please feel free to contact one of these agents or my friend Karla Mina at 312-498-8473. Good luck!

Hi Jason,

There are many different places and they depend on were your internship is located so you're not stuck in traffic if you are driving or you have easy access to public transportation. Some of the most popular areas are Bucktown, Wicker Park, South Loop, Loop, West Loop, River North, River West, Lincoln Park and Lakeview.

No better place to be than Chicago for the summer. Depending on where you are working, your budget and your need for public transportation you should stay within the following parameters: Addison to Cermak, The Lake to Ashland.

If you want to live downtown and are working downtown, I would recommend Old Town, River North, River West, Gold Coast, West Loop. All are easy access to the loop and have many restaurants, shops, nightlife and attractions that attract young professionals. All have easy access via bus or train to downtown and surrounding Chicago areas. Please let me know if you would like help finding a place to live.
