The Loop

Highly recommended
Looming large along the lakefront, Chicago's busy Loop and its environs have been fertile grounds for architectural innovation since the fire in 1871. Named for the elevated tracks that girdle them, these blocks bustle with workday energy as Chicagoans transact daily business in an array of office towers that catalogs the city's growth skyward since the 19C.
