The Loop is not just for business people and tourists. Everyone knows about the Chicago River, Lollapalooza, the Art Institute and Willis Tower (we're still prone to calling it Sears Tower; sorry, Willis!). But downtown Chicago offers many more things to do—museums, tours and attractions on the lesser beaten path. With DePaul University, Columbia College and SAIC, there are plenty of events catering to students. Sing along to a musical in the Chicago theater district. Step into a classic jazz club and see some of the top concerts in Chicago. Heck, there are even farmers' markets in the shadows of skycrapers.
