Travel Tips

Top 3 South Loop Walking Tours

Our tip for this Travel Tuesday is to consider walking tours when visiting a new city instead of just the usual tourist attractions. Walking tours provide you a more in-depth experience of a new location and give you insight and information you won’t find at your average tourist attraction.

Explore Chicago by taking a walking tour of different neighborhoods of the city to get information, views, and experiences you won’t find anywhere else! Check out these tour options for your next visit to the Windy City.

South Loop Walking Tours

Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Tour called Vice to Nice: Transformation of the South Loop is one of our favorite local tours. On this tour, you will get the history of the South Loop Neighborhood and how it has transformed over the years to this beautiful, thriving neighborhood. Click here for more information and availability.

Another great tour from the Chicago Architecture Foundation is their tour of the Historic Motor Row District (only a few short blocks from Hyatt Regency McCormick!). On this tour, you will be transported back to the Golden Age to experience the automotive district that became Motor Row. Find out more here.

Last, but certainly not least, is the Sin & Suds Beer Tour in the Loop & South Loop. On this tour you will explore the city and learn about its past – all while tasting Midwestern craft beer. Grab your friends and book your tour here.

Self-Guided Tour

If guided tours cramp your style, check out this self-guided tour of the South Loop that Chicago Magazine put together. You can choose either two half-day adventures, or you can spend an entire day exploring the area by completing both routes they provided. Click here for the map to start your adventure.


The best way to see Chicago and the South Loop is on foot! Grab your comfortable shoes and start exploring all the South Loop has to offer.

See you soon!
