If you like being close to everything but not on top of the action then South Loop is a neighborhood to consider. With a nice variety of hotels, restaurants, new stores at Roosevelt collection, and shops on canal you can definitely work up an appetite for anything you wish. You also have the Icon theater for when you need your fix of the big screen or go play in world famous grant park the Lake Michigan as your backdrop. Having the park and lake so conveniently located, you’ll have tons of options to go and explore all the festivals, concerts, and movies in the park that the Chicago Park district puts on for free. If you love football, Soldier Stadium is home to the Chicago Bears and countless sport events and music concerts. Having Lake Michigan so close to your doorstep you may have a good chance of having some decent views, or having water sports/boating options if you wish at Burnham harbor. Let’s not forget about Museum Campus, where you have Shedd aquarium, Field museum and Adler Planetarium!
As with most of Chicago, S loop is one of the most desirable and yet still very affordable options in the city compared to some of the more popular places within walking distance. Which has a great walk score to 4 major supermarkets, Trader Joe’s, Jewel, Wholefood and Target and a multitude of other lifestyles options that any major city has to offer, so let’s not forget all the public transportation is within a minutes-whether by car, or L (green,orange, red), or multiple bus routes.
