"Wacker Drive a great movie hotspot"

Wacker drive used for many movies through out history, including the blues brothers, known for being a multi level street and offering great views of the Chicago River. Provides great access to shopping, night life and the many great things Chicago has to offer. It is easy to get turned around and keep in mind the homeless often use lower Wacker as a resting place.

"unique location not too far out of the way."

Right on the Chicago River, this street is unusual in that it has an upper and lower level. Very unique for this city! There is a wonderful restaurant at 35 West Wacker drive called Catch 35, which serves the most outstanding seafood I have ever had! A great place to go for lunch or dinner, in a very unusual location.
