While the South Loop is a large part of the Near South Side MLS neighborhood, residents tend to think of it as its own area with a distinct feel and a unique set of amazing cultural and historical offerings. 

Among those offerings? The South Loop's eastern edge includes Museum Campus, a sprawling, gorgeous section of Grant Park that includes the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum, and Shedd Aquarium, along with lots of green space and stunning views of Lake Michigan. Want even more greenery? The South Loop also boasts easy access to Northerly Island, an undeveloped peninsula that is a welcome refuge for city-dwelling nature lovers (and fans of outdoor concerts).

As for Chicago history, the southern edge of South Loop includes legendary Soldier Field, home of the Bears; the area also includes some of Printer's Row - once the central hub of the Midwest's publishing industry - and the Prairie Avenue "Millionaire's Row," the home to many of Chicago's 19th century elites. Plus, this area is home to facilities for some of Chicago's institutions of higher learning, like Columbia College Chicago and Roosevelt University
