One of my favorite places! Fabulous shopping, restaurants, bars and people,watching. If you've never been to Chicago and are planning to visit be sure to spend some time on Michigan Ave. Walk by the river, stop in Ralph Lauren for lunch, check out the unique stores and have a cocktail at the top of the Hancock building!

We stayed on Michigan Ave, at the Chicago Hilton! We walked down Michigan for several miles, seen lots of sights, & history of a lot of buildings! Seen a helicopter lifting huge air conditioners to the top of a sky scraper!

Whether you're in the Loop or on the Magnificent Mile it's the ultimate stately avenue. The views amaze, whether it's the buildings or people watching.

We had a great time going in and out of shops and then watching all of the people on the streets. One of the mimes got a little upset with us for taking his picture but guess he shouldn't be standing on the sidewalk if he didn't want it taken.

Michigan Avenue is a place of its own. Shopping, landmarks, food, people, the river, bridge, etc. The Tribune Tower with its pieces of landmark bricks from all over the world. Many facets.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

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.
