Chicago Living Without Chicago Traffic

After I graduated from college, I quickly found a job in Chicago. I was excited: It was hard to get a job in the work climate I graduated into. I was thankful, but not looking forward to living somewhere as crowded as the city. Not my jam. After a bit of digging, I found Hanover, a suburb of Chicago that has it's own charms. A few weeks later I moved to the small city, and I've loved it since day one.

Living in Hanover has been a dream of convenience. Being so close to the city, it's easy to get to work. The city is surrounded by wilderness. The best areas in Hanover to get close to nature are Hawk Hollow, which is a huge grassland with a walking trail running through it, and Mallard Lake, a huge area with lakes, forests, and more. I love to go fishing there on the weekends. It's almost like I live back in the country!
