This is for architecture buffs. All buildings have their story and belong to a particular genre. The highlight is of course the chicago board of trade a jewel of the deco movement and comes with a great story in the context of the great depression. Try to take an architecture foundation walking tour to learn more about the buildings.

The buildings in this area really reflect strength in architecture and banking. The three main buildings are the Chicago Board of Trade, the old Continental Bank Building and the Federal Reserve. Today we visited the Continental Bank Building during Open House Chicago. We were able to tour the vault and rooftop. Quite impressive.

This is the Wall Street of the midwest. Also because that time is dated, it is a great collection of 1920 and 30's architecture.

I live in Chicago, and I never get tired of the enegry that pumps from the CBOT. It's great to people watch, but even better to check out the art deco buildings and unique arcitecture.

La Salle Street probably is the most filmed location in Chicago known from Batman to Transformers. Don't miss the Roockery Building

The financial district is located in the Chicago Loop and is centered on LaSalle St with the best part from Adams St to its end at the Chicago Board of Trade at Jackson Blvd. The two best attractions for visitors is seeing the architecture in these last two blocks, especially at dusk when the mixed artificial and natural light make the imposing facades all the more imposing, and the Money Museum at the Chicago Federal reserve. Architecturally, the art deco CBOT is the most impressive building in my option and the Money Museum is only open when the Federal Reserve is open. Since the "Fed" keeps bankers' hours, it can be challenging to see the museum with school aged children.
