The South Loop offers a dynamic combination of attractions and historical monuments, providing everybody with an experience they can appreciate.
A majority of the eastern edge is surrounded by the Museum Campus, which is an amazing collection of cultural artifacts like the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium. Resting on beautiful lakefront parklands, this campus and its views are an extension of Grant Park. Grant Park is better known as “Chicago’s front yard” and hosts a variety of major events within the city, including:
● And so much more
If you travel deeper into Lake Michigan you will find Northerly Island, a peninsula that treats nature lovers with some beautiful sights and experiences. And along the southern edge sports fans fill up Soldier Field, home stadium of the Chicago Bears.
But South Loop has even more surprises. History lovers will appreciate the Motor Row District, which sits along South Michigan Avenue and right around Prairie Avenue District is “Millionaires Row” which was a street filled with mansions that belonged to some of the wealthiest residents of Chicago during the 19th century.
In Printer’s Row, urban and modern condos fill the areas in what used to be the center of the Midwest’s publishing industry. You can still see a connection to this through the several book stores and annual summer literature festival. However, business professionals and students have brought a new, mellow vibe to the area. It is filled with restaurants, music clubs, small theaters, museums and so much more.
