With its wide range of amenities, shopping, restaurants, theaters, live music, museums, parks, festivals, farmers markets, and more, the Chicago Loop is a dynamic place to live, work, and play. Arriving at its landmark name, The Loop is the central business hub lying within the perimeter of the city's many local train's downtown convergence. A steady stream of buses, trains, and cabs (and of course, rideshares) shuttles people in and out of The Loop, where building facades showcase moments in history. The Loop’s vast architectural heritage, lush public park spaces, enticing water recreation, and sheer variety of artistic and cultural avenues help feed multiple audiences—from locals to visitors from across the globe.
In addition to everything one would love about The Loop, our city's newest neighborhood the New East Side offers proximity to all of it, but in a contemporary residential package. Tucked away at the farthest northeast corner of what's traditionally thought of as The Loop, the N.E.S has become a residential haven since the turn of the 21st century. Directly adjacent to The Loop, River North, Streeterville, and also walkable by foot to both the Gold Coast and the South Loop, the New East Side is best described as little coveted village in the heart of downtown Chicago.
Put very simply: What not to do? The Loop is simply not the epicenter of our grand city, but the entire midwest. Every year, millions of visitors and residents alike congregate on its ground to soak up the culture of what it means to be a Chicagoan. Always a source of local pride, the ever-revolving door to an urban, on-your-toes lifestyle is what's enjoyed in The Loop. Make it a point to buy your tickets ahead of time the world famous Chicago Theater, seeing world famous musicians, comedians, and other artists. The home to Broadway in Chicago, the newly renamed Nederlander Theater is the typically the second stop for the finest musicals and plays as they extend their reach out from Broadway in NYC. And for the traditional art lover, our renown Art Institute of Chicago and its unmistakable pair of sculpted lions will greet you as you walk into the facility off of Michigan Avenue. Inside, you'll be treated to largest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art on the planet outside of the Louvre in Paris.
For more "daily life" enjoyment, this part of town houses the world famous Grant Park, host to many annual gatherings such as Jazz Fest, Lollapalooza, the ten-week summer Grant Park Music Festival to name a few. And not to be overlooked, summer league softball, soccer, and every other outdoor recreation imaginable. Its newer neighbors to the north sits Millenium and Maggie Daley Parks, with their ice rink, open spaces, modern dining, and of course "The Bean," formally known as (and rarely called) Cloud Gate.
Beautifully combining the hustle and bustle of the 9-to-5ers, tourists of the world, and residents from everywhere in Chicago, The Loop's world class attractions are always within reach to anyone and everyone. Chicago welcomes all.
