We were excited to go to the new stadium to watch Northwestern play DePaul. The stadium itself is beautiful but the staff needs help. We bought floor seats but were told at halftime we were in the wrong - guys get your act together. The...More

I was there for a Depaul basketball game. The arena itself is nice. It's ironic that it has incorporated a few of the features of Depaul's former home, Allstate Arena. The corner sections are angled toward the floor and curtains at the top of the...More

This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park
