Your Score: CHICAGO!

You scored 54% Style, 9% Climate, and 70% Culture!

You are Chicago, Illinois. Chicago is the largest city in Illinois and the seat of Cook County. It stretches for 22 mi along the southwest shore of Lake Michigan in the northeast part of the state. The name Chicago is thought to come from an Algonquian word meaning “onion” or “skunk.” Today, Chicago is a major Great Lakes port and the commercial, financial, industrial, and cultural center of the Midwest. The manufacturing industries dominate the wholesale and retail trade, and trade in agricultural commodities is important to the economy. The Chicago Board of Trade is the largest agricultural futures market in the world. Among Chicago’s many attractions are the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum of Natural History, the Jane Addams’ Hull House Museum, Navy Pier, and numerous architectural landmarks such as the Sears Tower and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House.

Yeah, that’s right…it says “onion” or “skunk,” but you are definitely neither (and neither is your city). In fact, you are a very stylish person and cultured as well. You probably find that above information interesting because you like to learn things about your surroundings. And what surroundings they are- fast-paced, non-stop, always awake, and full of interesting people. You prefer city-life, and all the stores, restaurants, and arts it has to offer. And you certainly won’t let the cold or rain keep you down. You’re going to do what you want, when you want, and dammit, you’re going to have some fun, too!

I haven’t been back to Chicago since I was born (we left well before my first birthday) and I’ve only seen it from a Greyhound bus while on my way to Michigan with my mom about twenty years ago, but I have always felt a connection to it.

Guess I have to go back now…
