The center of downtown Chicago, with access to major cultural attractions, parks, shopping, and dining
If you are looking for modern, high-rise living and being amidst the bustle, then the Loop may be for you. Since it’s the true center of the city, the Loop offers easy access to other Chicago neighborhoods and Lake Michigan.
All the major train lines converge in The Loop, so transportation is simple. In fact, The Loop derives its name from the fact the train lines form a “loop” around this area. Some of city’s biggest attractions are in this area (Art Institute, the “Bean”, etc.), so it can be a little noisy and touristy. Yet it is local to a number of shopping and dining establishments.
