Summer in the Loop


There’s no better place to be for fun in the sun than the Chicago Loop. The famous warm-weather attractions like the music festivals at Millennium Park, award-winning river cruises, and some of the finest rooftop dining belong on any bucket list. And State Street shopping will make you look and feel like summer. Craft your perfect experience in the Loop.

For the culture vultures, ACTIVATE brings a series of four summer nights inspired by the art of performance to unexpected places in the Loop. And the glittering marquees of the Loop’s Theatre District welcome Tony Award®-winning performances, while internationally renowned museums offer a glimpse of the world. The possibilities are endless.
