"This is the MidWest. Although..." Chicago Local Custom Tip by Ramonq

Chicago Local Customs: 150 reviews and 190 photos

This is the MidWest. Although Chicago is a huge modern city which appears impersonal like New York, Chicagoans have retained their old values and each suburb is like a small town community. The people are fairly conservative here compared to the impatient New Yorkers.
