Loved the Loop! Very clean and felt safe. Gorgeous flowers planted everywhere. Streets, sidewalks are all handicap ramped. Restaurants, businesses, shopping not very accessible at all. We needed the help of a fellow traveler to help us in and out of almost every place. Public...More

If you're a Blues Brother fan this is cool travel back in time. Also a cool way to see another part of the city. It's cheap, fun, and safe. We rode it twice to get additional pictures we missed not knowing what was coming up....More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
