Chicago is what New York was in the 70s-fun, hip, and affordable. Sure, there may not be such an extensive subway system, but there is a subway system and bus system. Eating and playing are fun and cheap in Chicago. And don't believe the hype about winter. It's really not that bad! (Well, not all the time).
