Great place to shop and people watch

Michigan Avenue is a great place to shop and people watch. For dinning try State Street a few streets over.

The Mile was THE most exciting feature of our Chicago vacation! I can't rave enough about this excellent stretch of activities perfection. There is something for everyone along this stretch. I loVeD the shopping. There were sales galore so it's a mistake to think you won't be able to afford anything. High end is always high end but there are... More

The Mile has every type of shop or restaurant, you can spend a day easily wandering around and taking it all in. Most are high end shops but well worth checking out. Taxiis are available at any time of the day or night. Well worth going to while in Chicago.

Just a nice place to stroll and enjoy the city. Upscale, busy, noisy, and great. This is premium Chicago at its best and a stroll that should not be missed. The stores are mainly eye candy as no one actually shops in them. It does have this mini Hershey store that is kind of neat and good for kids. It... More

The Magnificent Mile has everything either on it or close by. Shopping galore at every level and for every age. Amazing restaurants from cheap fast food to expensive, high end dining. Every level and type of hotel. Even the lake with beach are close. And public transportation even the train are close. Parking is expensive.

There's so much to see and do on the Magnificent Mile - even if you just find a resting spot and people watch. Stores galore - of all price ranges and styles. Side streets are fun to go down - popcorn shops, restaurants, bars, eclectic mix of shops, some ethnic food. Takes more than a day to see everything -... More

Definitly it worth the visit. Nice sightseeing. A lot of amazing buildings, stores and good restaurants (most of them not cheap). Don't come by car, the parking is expensive and walking is the best way to enjoy the magnificent mile.

The magnificent mile is a great place to window shop while in the Chicago area. A very close second to New York city's fifth ave.

If you can afford the prices it might be more fun. Nice for people watching and window shopping though.

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
