The Chicago Bears are basically the NFL's version of The Bachelor right now and all the towns in the Chicagoland area are the contestants trying to win the final rose. In case you don't know, the Chicago Bears are looking to own their own stadium and that means most likely leaving Chicago for a suburb. This isn't a new thing in the NFL the Dallas Cowboys aren't in Dallas, the San Francisco 49ers aren't in San Fran, the New York Jets & Giants aren't even in the state of New York, I could go on and on but you get the idea.

So far the leader in the clubhouse for landing the Chicago Bears has been the suburb of Arlington Heights where the Bears just purchased a large piece of property the former Arlington racetrack. But...  a new powerful suitor has emerged, Aurora. Aurora is the second most populated city in the state and has a lot of space in the western suburbs of Chicago. According to FOX 32 Chicago...

"Following the Bears' decision to explore options beyond Arlington Heights, Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin sent a letter to Bears general manager Kevin Warren to express his city's interest and extend a personal invitation for the team to visit the western suburb."

I am a die-hard Bears fan so how do I feel about all of this? The Bears need a new state-of-the-art stadium and facility that they can own, which will make them more competitive. Chicagoland needs a beautiful new stadium to be able to host Super Bowls, Olympics, Final Fours, and much more. Where will the Bears end up? Right now I lean towards Arlington Heights, the property is perfect, and the location is great, BUT I do think Aurora would be a better option than Naperville and the other suburbs who have thrown their hats into the ring.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
