We had planned a trip to New York but the airports were all shut in anticipation of a blizzard. We changed our flights last minute to Chicago and it was one of the best last minute plans ever! We only had 3 days there and spent 2 nights on the Magnificent Mile. The City is stunning and will leave you... More

It's much more than just a mile of a beautiful boulevard. Shopping for all tastes, restaurants for a quick snack or a bid-deal dinner, good hotels, and interesting museums. Be sure to go a couple of blocks off Michigan Ave to really get the flavor of River North.

All the shopping with great restaurants along with Chicago landmarks all in one stroll (albeit a long one). Great sites along the way. There's something for everybody here. Be sure to take this all in when you come to Chicago. Great for people watching also. "It won't let you down......"

Great shopping experience. All middle to high end brand stores along with several departmental stores. The prices were similar to those in NY but most products were a lot cheaper compared to their prices in my home city. Would strongly recomend everyone to visit the numerous boutique stores lining the side lanes of the main street. Apart from the quality... More

Up there with the best, beat 5th Avenue by miles. The mile has flagship store for all middle top end brands, the side streets all have great food. Very well laid out and perfectly maintain. Chicago knows what a clean street should look like. Busy day and night.

I love Chicago!!! The Magnificent Mile is wonderful. Lots of shopping! I can't wait to go back!!! Every department store that you could ever dream of, is located in this area. Don't visit Chicago without visiting The Magnificent Mile.

I visited Chicago back in September 2014. Absolutely fell in love with the city! I stayed down on the Millionaire Mile. By far one of the best vacations that I have ever taken in my entire life. The architecture in downtown Chicago is breathtaking. There are all sorts of attractions. The artistry there is absolutely amazing. There are things to... More
