Thanks to a combination of low living costs, quality schools, a diverse natural landscape, and a solid economic base, Illinois certainly can be a great place to live, work, and perhaps raise a family. For many older Illinois residents, though, leaving the Midwest for warmer and sunnier climes becomes an attractive option. Just ask the residents of StrawBerry Ridge near Tampa, many of whom hail from Illinois.
