A monthly public transport ticket costs $100 in both cities.

Say goodbye to high cases of road rage and hello to more enjoyable commutes in Chicago!


When it comes to activities, there are fewer museums to visit in Chicago, but the windy city does have more sports opportunities in terms of stadiums, arenas and the like. If your inner sportsman is non-existent, Chicago also has a vibrant food, wine and nightlife scene guaranteed to entertain everyone.

Environmental Factors

Chicago has a lower average temperature of 52 degrees Fahrenheit compared to 66.3 degrees in LA. So if cooler temperatures are more your thing, Chicago is the place for you. Chicago may not have a seaside beach, but it has lakes that offer excellent recreational activities that will keep you entertained for a long time to come.
