    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
