The Loop, Chicago

The Loop is a community that encompasses the central business district that emerged in Chicago after the city's historic fire in 1871. The name derives from the old streetcars that “looped” around the area, although there is a counter argument that suggests its origins are associated with the route of the iconic elevated train system of the city. The Willis Tower - possibly still better known by its former name the Sears Tower - is the dominating structure in the impressive skyline, although the Bean at Millennium Park and Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park are real draws for the tourist.

  • Take in the city sights from the observation deck of the largest building in the US. Perched at a massive 103 floors up the Willis Tower, you are offered spectacular views of Chicago, Lake Michigan and beyond.
  • Catch a musical in one of the many fabulously restored theatres located within The Loop.
  • Enjoy delicious French cuisine prepared by a world-renowned chef at the Everest restaurant, often touted as not just the best in The Loop, but in all of Chicago.

Getting around The Loop is easily done by using its superb public transport system. Seven of the eight different lines of the Chicago elevated train system (the El) all directly serve this community, with red, brown, purple, pink and green lines approaching from all directions and the orange and blue lines linking to O'Hare International Airport. Commuter trains arrive at Union Station, which is just a few minute walk from The Loop. Automobile traffic doesn't flow very well through the area, so whilst bus and car journeys are an option, they are not advised.
