Where is it?
The Loop is the heart of city and it’s bursting with iconic Chicago attractions, including historic architecture, river cruises, Millennium Park, the Chicago Riverwalk, a vibrant theater district, incredible dining, shopping along State Street…and that’s just for starters.
As Chicago’s official downtown area, the Loop is celebrated for its dynamic architecture and big city buzz. To get a grasp on the area’s architectural legacy, start your visit with one of the many great architecture river cruises, like the Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruise aboard Chicago’s First Lady Cruises.
The Loop is also home to the award-winning Chicago Riverwalk, a pedestrian-only pathway lined with great waterfront restaurants, the McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum, and the mind-blowing digital art display Art on theMART.
On the lakefront side of the Loop, you’ll also find the Millennium Park Campus — home to iconic Cloud Gate (aka “The Bean”), Crown Fountain, peaceful Lurie Garden, and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion that hosts legendary music festivals like the Chicago Blues Festival, Chicago Jazz Festival, and a free summer music series and film series. Right next door, you can rock climb, ice skate, rollerblade and play at whimsical Maggie Daley Park.
Get your culture fix at the historic Art Institute of Chicago, one of the top museums in the world. It’s also one of the oldest and largest art museums in the country, home to one of the most impressive collections of Impressionist art in the world.
Nearby, the Chicago Cultural Center is a stunning landmark filled with free exhibits, art, and performances. Gaze up at the largest Tiffany stained glass dome in the world while you’re there. And at Skydeck in Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), you can step out onto The Ledge — a glass box that extends outside the building, 1,353 feet up.
Last but not least, the Loop is where you’ll find Chicago’s celebrated Theatre District, buzzing with Tony Award-winning shows, world premieres, and glittering marquees at the likes of the Auditorium Theatre, the Chicago Theater, the Cadillac Palace Theatre, and the Nederlander Theatre.
Kayak the skyscraper canyon formed by the Chicago River. Enjoy free classical concerts surrounded by architectural greatness at the Chicago Cultural Center. Explore the city’s underground tunnel system with a Pedway tour. Enjoy our nearby beaches in the summertime.
Taste, shop and explore the neighborhoods - you are at the center of it all with the elevated train system (the "el") connecting you to almost every neighborhood in the city. Explore rich histories, diverse cultural traditions and hidden treasures throughout the city. Plus, you are only a few minutes walk from the famous Michigan mile - filled with more shopping and entertainment delights. World class spas are steps away at the Langham hotel and Spa Wit.
