As the third-most populous city in the United States, Chicago is the urban jewel of the Midwest. Renowned for world-class architecture, countless parks, and Midwestern charm, the Windy City is loved by visitors and locals alike (even throughout what seems to be an endless winter year after year). Some people consider Chicago to be a cleaner, more hospitable version of New York City, which perhaps contributed to it being the second-most visited city in the US in 2018. At any rate, Chicago is definitely worth exploring, and Bounce's luggage storage locations are here to watch over your things while you do.

Chicago, Illinois, is one of America’s largest Midwestern States. It’s also one of the US’ most popular tourist locales for several reasons; Chicago is the home of several legendary sports teams, and the city is also lauded for its fine dining experiences. As of 2020, Chicago has a population size of nearly 3 million people. Unfortunately, such a large population means that Chicago experiences more crime than other American cities. Fortunately, you can keep yourself and your loved ones safe by staying informed.

Research shows that Windy City ranks 7th in the National Crime Index. A ranking of 1 refers to the most dangerous cities, and 100 refers to the safest. Chicago purportedly experiences around 115, 279 crimes annually. These statistics are further split into two categories - violent crimes and property crimes. The National Crime Index suggests that 1 in every 99 civilians may experience violent crime, and 1 in every 31 civilians may have their property damaged or stolen. Chicago’s violent Crime rate is likely much lower than property Crime due to the efforts of Chicago’s Law Enforcement agencies. Ultimately, the Chicago Police Department and your safe practices will protect you from violent crime. However, Bounce can protect your possessions while you visit Chicago and will insure your belongings up to $10,000 while they're stored in a Bounce location for added peace of mind. Wherever you are in Chicago, with Bounce you'll be able to find luggage storage near you.
