Explore the Loop
The Loop is probably what most people think of when they think of downtown Chicago; it encompasses the area between Lake Michigan and the river, and is bounded on the south by Roosevelt. Everything in Chicago is measured in its distance from the Loop. Some of the notable landmarks in the Loop include the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), the Chicago Art Institute, and the Chicago Board of Trade. You’ll also find Millennium Park and the theatre district. Some of Chicago’s more famous art installations can be found here, from “the Bean” in Millennium Park to “The Four Seasons” by Chagall.
Entertainment and Shopping
It isn’t the Magnificent Mile, but State Street boasts plenty of shops, and the Loop is home to Chicago’s theatre district. Take in a show at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts (aka the Oriental), or stop by the Cadillac Theatre or the Goodwin. The famous Chicago Theatre is also here. If plays aren’t to your taste, you can go to the Civic Opera House and see the Chicago Symphony Orchestra or the Lyric Opera.
There is no shortage of transportation options in the Loop. Every L line except the Yellow intersects in the Loop, and bus stops are plentiful. In addition, the two major train stations (Ogilvie Transportation Center and Union Station) make it easy to get to the suburbs or beyond, via either Metra commuter rail or Amtrak. If you plan to travel by air, you can always take the L to the airport. The Chicago Pedway is a series of tunnels, concourses, and overhead bridges that makes a network of pathways through the Loop, enabling the adventurous traveler to get from place to place without having to expose oneself to the elements.
