Chicago’s South Loop: Historic Downtown Neighborhood Near World-Class Museums and Lake Michigan

A cultural renaissance in recent years has seen Chicago’s South Loop turn into one of the city’s most vibrant residential and industrial centers. The downtown neighborhood is bordered on the north by Printer’s Row, a two-block stretch along Dearborn Street once known as the printing capital of the Midwest. Here you’ll find some of the buildings that made Chicago one of the world’s leaders in architecture in the 1880s and ’90s—a title it’s held ever since.

To the east lies Lake Michigan and the Museum Campus, a 57-acre lakefront park home to the city’s trio of natural-sciences museums. The Field Museum houses more than 21 million artifacts, including its most famous resident, Sue, the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex fossil ever unearthed. Bullfrogs, beluga whales, and moon jellies dwell at Shedd Aquarium, and stargazers will want to make a stop at Adler Planetarium, the first of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.
