I am planning on staying near Michigan Ave for a shopping trip. I have never made it off the Magnificant Mile. Is it worth it to go over to Carson Pirie Scott? Can we walk from say, Nordstroms? I am wondering about distance and safety. Also, is it safe to walk from Nordstrom to Ruths Chris? I hate taxi cabs. I don't mind paying but I hate the way some of those guys drive. Thanks for your help.
