One of 77 officially designated community areas in Chicago, Bridgeport stands out from the rest of the pack thanks to its culturally-rich history and trendy present.

Located about three miles southwest of the Loop, Bridgeport is a neighbor to Pilsen, McKinley Park, and Armour Square, and puts sports fans in convenient proximity to Guaranteed Rate Field, home to the Chicago White Sox. It’s also been called “a haven for artists and creative types” by Choose Chicago, and was named one of the city’s “coolest neighborhoods” by CNN.

Before its current status as a destination for art and culture, Bridgeport was renowned for being one of the oldest neighborhoods in all of Chicago. It has been the home or birthplace for five mayors, and is also home to the breaded steak sandwich, a Chicago original that still draws visitors to the city.

While the South Loop is a large part of the Near South Side MLS neighborhood, residents tend to think of it as its own area with a distinct feel and a unique set of amazing cultural and historical offerings. 

Among those offerings? The South Loop's eastern edge includes Museum Campus, a sprawling, gorgeous section of Grant Park that includes the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum, and Shedd Aquarium, along with lots of green space and stunning views of Lake Michigan. Want even more greenery? The South Loop also boasts easy access to Northerly Island, an undeveloped peninsula that is a welcome refuge for city-dwelling nature lovers (and fans of outdoor concerts).

As for Chicago history, the southern edge of South Loop includes legendary Soldier Field, home of the Bears; the area also includes some of Printer's Row - once the central hub of the Midwest's publishing industry - and the Prairie Avenue "Millionaire's Row," the home to many of Chicago's 19th century elites. Plus, this area is home to facilities for some of Chicago's institutions of higher learning, like Columbia College Chicago and Roosevelt University
