“Shopping and eat galore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

If you like to eat out and you like to shop, then you cannot ask for much more than what you get in the North Michigan Avenue area. Great steaks, great pizza, $$$$ eats, good breakfast, wide range of hotels, the big name stores - all can be found in this area. Christmas season is our favorite time to visit.

“PARKING WAY TOO HIGH, SAFETY ISSUES”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Used to go downtown a lot for Holiday shopping as an annual event. 900 N. Michigan, Water Tower Place, Drake Hotel, and John Hancock Center.

Parking and sales taxes got too high. This last year just drove down to see some of the decorations but did not even bother to stop and shop.

With the winter so bad, have not gone back at all in the Spring. Concerned about random violence that is occurring and not being covered by the media.

Last weekend went to OakBrook Center instead.

Can't go wrong on Michigan Ave. There are high end stores and reasonably priced stores. Something for everyone. Best place to be during the summer!
