Every shop under the sun and then some along Michigan Avenue. Don't drive it if you're here, you've got more than enough buses and the L to do that for you. So much cleaner than NYC and amazing architecture that I really need to do an architecture tour of to have a better understanding of it. Over the winter, take advantage of the Light Festival the weekend before Thanksgiving. Come take in the Mag Mile when you're here!

Mind you, lots of people so walk like you know what you're doing and watch your bags

I visited the Magnificent Mile recently and I had a wonderful time. I walked up and down Michigan Ave amongst many people. Michigan Ave has all the retail stores you can imagine. You can find designer stores, Michael Jordan's Steakhouse and you can go on boat tours and bus tours. Dress comfortable and wear comfy shoes!

Everystore and department store imaginable. Easily could spend hours shopping if that is your thing! Plan for an entire day if you want to hit everything. Also, check out the side streets as there are popular stores there as well.

See new Chicago, see some of old Chicago. Michigan ave and the Miracle Mile are an explorers dream. From to the posh hotels to the Old Chicago water tower . It is a renaissance of this great old town. The view from the John Hancock observatory at night is beautiful.Lots of great restaurants, fast food, amazing popcorn, gelato.

I attended a conference in Chicago this month at the Intercontinental which is on Michigan Ave which is an amazing place for walking, people watching, and shopping. I was most impressed with the cleanliness and no litter. I enjoyed the vibe. I live near a major city on the East Coast and visit NYC frequently; Chicago is awesome!
