Lately it seems everyone on the El has their heads down, eyes glued to their smart phones or tablets. Which means they're completely missing our favorite thing about the ride: the great views of the city. We took a trip around the loop and made a plan for your family to enjoy a whole day on the CTA Orange Line.You might also like:
Your next stop is State/Lake. Walk south on State and on the right you'll pass the ABC7 studios. If you time your trip right, you can watch a broadcast through the glass from the sidewalk. Next, keep walking south and make a right onto Randolph where you'll find our favorite Argo Tea. The outside looks like something out of a storybook, and inside you'll find refreshments and snacks for the whole family.
Before you get back on the train, walk north to Wacker. From here, you'll be able to see the river and iconic Chicago buildings like Trump Tower, Tribune Tower and Marina City Towers.
