Luxury Car Rentals Chicago and The Loop
Are you a part of The Loop? If you're heading downtown in your Chicago Exotic Car Rentals rent-a-car you soon will be! The Loop is what locals refer to as downtown Chicago's historical center. The second largest downtown business district in the nation (Midtown Manhattan is the first), The Loop is best known for its skyscraping buildings and rational street numbering system. Bounded on the north and west by the Chicago River, on the east by Lake Michigan and on the south by Roosevelt Road, The Loop lacks expansion space, resulting in one of the nation's most densely populated skyscraper territories. In fact, many of the historic buildings in this district were actually instrumental in the development of the high-rise building. Chicago's Home Insurance Building, which is located at the heart of The Loop, is even considered to be the world's first skyscraper. Millions upon millions of Chicago car rentals have traveled the streets of The Loop since its construction and now you can too! Whether you're interested in viewing some of the city's exciting architecture, or simply itching to get some serious shopping done, you'll find it all inside The Loop so why wait! Don't miss a beat and become a part of The Loop during your upcoming Chicago Car Rentals vacation!

he Loop's Many Faces: Different Opinions on The Loop's Boundaries
Although every Chicago resident knows where The Loop is, personal opinions tend to differ over where the boundaries end and beginning. Originally, The Loop was designated by an 1882 streetcar car. Most residents agree that The Loop is now best designated by the elevated Chicago Transit Authority train lines that circles a five-by-seven block area of downtown. The boundaries of this line are Lake Street, Wells Street, Van Buren Street and Wabash Avenue. The official City of Chicago community area boundaries are those mentioned earlier - the Chicago River, Roosevelt Road and Lake Michigan. A third neighborhood boundary is also often referred to extending the boundaries from Roosevelt Road to Congress Parkway.
