Once an industrial meatpacking district, the West Loop has transformed into a destination for some of the best restaurants in Chicago, a hub for corporate headquarters (hello, Google and McDonald's) and the home of an array of exciting boutique hotels. Most visitors gravitate to Randolph Street and Fulton Market, where you'll find Michelin-starred restaurants, a historic Italian deli and a subterranean ramen shop. Once you're full, try to set a high score at an arcade bar, see a show at a nearby music venue or shop at one of the city's menswear destinations. With so many great things to do in West Loop, you may want to take several afternoons to explore it all.
