The shopping is world-class, food options limitless and ambiance very urban but upscale. Incredible hotels in this area, but the best is the Four Seasons.

There is a reason they call it MAGNIFICANT and that because it can't be beaten as far as shopping goes

Magnificent Mile is the 5th Avenue of Chicago. You will enjoy walking up and down Michigan Avenue enjoying all the high-end stores from Ralph Lauren to Cartier. Also, recommend Oak Street, which is the Madison Avenue of Chicago. More upscale and not as crowded.

Chicago is large and takes more than one visit to really enjoy all it has to offer. On this trip I was able to spend time on the mile. I hang in NYC all the time; enough said - smile. Love it for its; architecture, shopping, restaurants, iconic buildings and sane tourist-lol.

Depending on what you are looking for, will depend on how you will view this attraction. If you like shopping for hours in all sorts of shops then this is the place for you!

All the glam shops are down this road. Window shopping with not a lot of actually shopping. Ritzy name brands like coach and Burberry. Etc etc. nice walk if you need to waste some time.

Lots of great stores, lots of homeless begging for money, and lots of people looking to steal your stuff. In the first hour we were on the strip our cigarettes were stolen. Then our iPhone.

There's nothing great about the magnificent mile. It is basically an outdoor mall that is spread out along the stretch of street. The normal High quality Stores.. Macys, nordstrom, Victoria secret ..

Mainly I saw overpriced restaurants, like Jordans steakhouse, and lots of shopping. I noticed the benches were old seats from Wrigley Field that had been painted, that was pretty cool, but expected to see something more.
