It can be a little confusing if you take the subway to the loop. We were looking for lunch as we were headed to Millennium park. This is full on hustle and bustle city life, then a few blocks north is the park and green...More
Second time to Chicago and second time to get out and about and away from Millenium Mile where we were staying. Think we got the hang of it more this time round and would encourage any visitor to do the same.
The loop is home to several great parks, lots of restaurants, rooftop bars and architecture that captures the vibe of Chicago.
Walking around you get a sense of the present, the past and the future of Chicago.
The loop is not to be missed whether...More
I live here so am biased, but then again I should know, right? Take a stroll around the Loop. It is worth the walk. From the park side to the river, you'll see great architecture and many shops and restaurants to visit, or just window...More
Close and convenient to everything the Loop has a vibe all its own...a real must.....so many choices of eateries......places to grab a cocktail and just hang with friends. It never fails I always make new friends when I hang out there!
My wife and I were in Chicago for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and see Hamilton. Our hotel was in the loop and we were able to walk from Union Station to our hotel, restaurants, the Riverwalk, the Lakefront Trail and the theater. It...More
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
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

Yes. The Chicago Transit Authority sells day passes for $10 and three day passes for $20. Google the CTA for more info. By the way, Chicago now uses a Ventra Card that costs an additional $5 but you can cash it in at one ad the stations before you leave I believe. Or you can keep it if you are coming back to Chicago in the future. You tap in to use it at the turnstiles. This is very similar to the Oyster Card used in London. Oh, the day pass is good for 24 hours from the time you first use it. Just google the CTA for videos of how to use it and fares, etc.
