“The Loop” (Chicago’s Business District)

The historical center of downtown Chicago, The Loop is the second largest downtown business district in the country. Bounded by the Chicago River, Lake Michigan and Roosevelt Road, The Loop is shaped by architecturally diverse high-rises. The district’s historic buildings include the Home Insurance Building, the first skyscraper, and the Sears Tower, the tallest in the US.

I’m going on a business trip to the Loop next week and I am very nervous since this will be my first visit there. I’ll tell you my impressions of this district as soon as I get back.

The Loop has some amazing architecture for some day time sightseeing. But at night, head a few blocks north to the River North neighborhood for excellent restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Good luck on your trip!
