“It's Magnificent Indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Lights, color, sound, smells, and fun... all up and down the Magnificent Mile. Every store you wanted and some you never heard of... all right there. The Hershey store, Gerret's popcorn, and so much more... oh, and other stores besides food stores. The clothing stores... whew... I can't list everything I like about this place. You gotta see for yourself!

“Shop till you drop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Beautiful in December, and not bad the rest of the year too. If you like to shop... or people watch, this is the place. There is everything on this strip... shops to food. And for a big city... pretty safe too. Please note... wear comfortable walking shoes. there is a lot to see, and some of the Big stores are beautiful inside... go take a peek.

“Magnificent Mile”

The number of stores is unreal! I, however, got caught up in Coach! Every woman needs a Coach "something"!

“Great for Architecture Savvy & Shoppers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

It is one of the most beautiful areas in downtown Chicago and because it is so, it makes it very attractive for Shoppers as all the major brands have their own stores + malls. And also for the ones who enjoy an interesting walk looking up at the architecture.

There are lots of walking tours in this area if u are interested to learn more about it.
