Was really looking forward to the shopping but have to say a little disappointed by it, although the highlight are the many horse statues.

If you are looking to shop this is the place to be. Busy street with most of the well known fashion brands located here. Never a dull moment and you can spend a few hours or an entire day just window shopping and watching tourists go by.

I visit Chicago frequently on business. Every year or two, we try to get to the Magnificent Mile for a weekend. It never fails to impress. The people of Chicago are great. Big city for sure, but all Midwestern friendly.

With a name like that, it sells itself. Truly fun area to walk around and check out. Safe and secure all day. Many shops and restaurants. Walk around and explore.

Neighborhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
