The Chicago Board of Trade Building was a stop on our Art Deco tour. The statue, Ceres - the goddess of grain, and the building are a big part of Chi-Town's history and a must see.

This building is all hustle and bustle with busy traders running around making and losing big sums of $$$$. Tour the trading floor if you can arrange it, and there's a cool old bank vault in the basement worth viewing as well.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
