This is a great place for a shop for all ages and prices. Lots of variety. Standards of service much better than our trips to New York. You fell safe and welcomed. Very clean streets. Good place to pass a day.

My family hopped onto a trolley bus and toured the magnificent mile, it was so much fun and a great way to see the city, and the price was reasonable. I would do this again in a heartbeat. The blue angels were in town and it was really cool to see them flying above us as we rode through the... More

The magnificent mile is a row of shops, many many shops, some of them elegant, some others - less elegant. Shopping makes one tired and nervous, but when you fianally find what you wanted to buy - tiredness and boredom are gone.On the whole, it is a very impressive shopping row, but one visit is more than enough.

Lots of nice stores. Some nice architecture. In the end it's just stores and most are the same you find in malls.

We stayed at the Westin Hotel right on the Magnificent Mile. The Magnificent Mile on Michigan Avenue has all these wonderful shops, restaurants, landmarks and drug stores. I love this location and will stay here again.

It's always fun walking the Magnificent Mile to shop as well as people watch. Variety of stores for all budgets and styles. All of the staff at all of the stores we stopped in were very friendly.

Stayed at the hyatt Regency and it was in walking distance. The Magnificent Mile had just about ever store I could ever think of. Beware if your shopping on Sunday, most stores are open, but some of the stores are closed on Sundays.

I tell friends that Chicago is a lot like Toronto, but with better shopping and it's because of the Magnificent Mile. Spacious sidewalks and welcoming, well lit street-level shops line both sides of the street. Didn't see much evidence of the homeless but that might have been because it was raining the day we were there. There is great discount... More

However, the area & architecture are compelling. Rode thru on top deck of bus but came back to walk later. Enticing window displays. Such upscale excess in contrast to homeless occupants of the area.

I normally don't shop along the Mag Mile, but the fam and I love going during the holidays. It makes for great people watching! We love seeing all the streets lit up and festive. It really does put one in the holiday spirit.
