The Loop

The Loop is the historic heart of Chicago’s downtown, boasting much of the city's finest architecture.


A prime tourist destination, the Loop originally got its name from the elevated train tracks that form a loop around the city’s business and cultural core.


If you've never been to the Windy City, begin by exploring the many highlights of this extraordinary neighborhood. From an architecture cruise along the Chicago River, to viewing the city’s world-class collection of public art, to dining on fine cuisine or tasty street fare, the Loop’s attractions are enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.
