Must see, a great avenue, with chic and grandeur. It has been compared to Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, and it truly is like it, only wider and with less of a hassle.

Great to walk down this famed street in Chicago. Not huge into designer shopping but it's there if you are! We visited in early spring so the flowers & gardens were all out, beautiful to see those touches in a city!

Even if you can't afford Sacks Fifth Avenue, you can still enjoy trying on the clothes and chatting with the great salespeople at all the shops. Tommy Bahama and Loft were highlights. The Water Tower plaza was a bit dingy, and its Macy's (although chock full of great deals), was a tad tired and in need of a good tidying... More

Manhattan has Park Ave. and Paris has Champs-Elysees and they are lovely. And Chicago has The Magnificent Mile, a lovely strip of Michigan Ave that holds its own among the beautiful city boulevards of the world. It's just a wonderful stroll that takes in the architecture of the past century in all its glory. It's a must if you are... More

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.
