Moving to Chicago?  If you’re thinking about relocating to the “Windy City” don’t make a move without QuotesAtHome.  Chicago may be the largest city in the state, but it’s not the capital of Illinois as many people mistakenly believe.  The actual capital of Illinois is Springfield.

Here are some Fun Facts about Chicago:
  • The origin of the name “Windy City” is somewhat of a mystery.  It is a popular myth that newspaper editor Charles Dana coined the phrase in 1893 during a national debate over which city would host the World’s Fair.  In reality, Chicago is not ranked very high on the list of “windiest cities” \according to the National Climatic Data Center. 

  • The Sears Tower, once the tallest building in the world, is the tallest building in North America at 110 stories.  (In 1996 the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur became the tallest.)

  • Every Saint Patrick’s Day, the Chicago River is dyed green.  This unique celebration of the Irish holiday has been a tradition for more than 40 years.
