Chicago is such a fun, clean, well laid out city! The Mag Mile has many high end shops, but is a nice walk just to see the buildings, Chicago River, The Bean, and have a great cup of tea at Argos or hot chocolate at Ghiradelli. Also don't miss Pauline Books

The Magnificent Mile is a great part of Chicago filled with eateries, shops, and attraction. It is very easy to walk and get around, and the panhandling is minimal.

So many stores to choose from. My wife loves shopping for clothes and makeup. Prices are great. Be sure to stop in and ask your concierge at your hotel for any available deals or coupons while on your stay. Most have things that are not advertised they can provide for you.

We walked from the Water Tower Park to Ohio Street last night and window shopped back and forth across Michigan Avenue. The vibrancy and excitement in the air was just fantastic.

Great times walking up Michigan and watching all the tourist and locals. It's like Times Square except 9 blocks longer and with better food!

Strolled up and down the magnificent mile. Great opportunity for high-end shopping. Some of the store workers were very friendly and others were a bit snooty.

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
