Chicago's Most Walkable Neighborhoods

South Loop: Walkscore 92

The South Loop has experienced some serious growth and development over the past few years. With the addition of new apartment and office buildings comes the demand for more retail, dining and entertainment options. While the South Loop has always enjoyed easy access to attractions such as the Chicago Lakefront Trail, Millennium Park and multiple museums as well as close proximity to the Downtown area, the continued buzz around this neighborhood means right now is the time to move-in and make this neighborhood home, before everyone else catches on!

There are some incredible apartment communities being built in the South Loop area, most notably 1333 South Wabash apartments. This luxury, pet-friendly building began welcoming its first residents in August. Residents here enjoy being within very short walking distance of both Jewel and Trader Joe’s grocery stores, and with the over 550 restaurants, bars and taverns that call the South Loop home, you’ll never be short on dining options.
