“Don't need to say much”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Just, enjoy the Mile and the life in it, stores, up to high end, street musicians, loads of tourists, but mixing in hard working Chicagoans, resulting in a great mixture of life.

“Bring your walking shoes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Get ready for a long walk. There aren't many places to park, but if you're prepared and plan for the time you can get a lot out of a shopping trip on the Magnificent Mile. Millennium Park is to the south, the Chicago river, nearby a modern art museum, theatre, the lake, and oh did I mention the shopping. There are indoor shopping malls, but then there are just stores gallore up and down Michigan avenue. Apple, the Legos Store, Hershey, and I don't know how many designer stores. You can go to the Hancock, and a cocktail, take in a show at the Looking Glass Theatre, or even experience some great modern art at the Museum of Contemporary Art. But be prepared for that walking.
