In recent years, growth and interest in South Loop has really heated up. Learn more about this booming neighborhood and why it’s the perfect spot for the young and ambitious.
Life in South Loop
Many Chicago neighborhoods offer nightlife and culture, but the up-and-coming neighborhood of South Loop boasts such icons as Soldier Field, Museum Campus and the Adler Planetarium. Your practical needs are met as well, with places like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Target and Walgreens located right in town.
Some other areas of interest in South Loop include:

If you’re worried about an environment that’s too urban and crowded, you’re in for a treat. Green spaces and waterfront views abound, keeping you in touch with nature. Because of this, residents of South Loop usually bike or walk all over the city, but the CTA’s Roosevelt Road station has Green, Red and Orange Line stops to take you anywhere else you may need to go. Other nearby lines run to the neighboring communities of Old Town, Gold Coast and River North. You don’t need a car in Chicago, but if you have one, there’s also quick access to Interstate 90/94, Interstate 290, U.S. 41 and Interstate 55.
