Don’t get thrown—The Loop is Chicago’s official downtown neighborhood, named for where streetcars looped during the late 1800s. Towering and ornate skyscrapers with views a la Ferris Bueller reward those not afraid of heights. Back on the ground, this cultural and financial hub draws thousands of tourists daily. Local eateries serve everything from steak to sushi, and stunning live entertainment venues create countless memorable moments.
