We loved staying in the loop. It's very walk-able and there are tons of shops to dip into. This is something you completely miss by hailing cabs.

All of the great stuff in Chicago is here. You will be a part of this and not even know it. Taking an UBER here is very easy.

You can see just about all of it by walking but from one end to the other is a couple of miles. Wear your walking shoes and don't try to impress anyone with what you wear, just be comfortable and bring your camera. If you...More
