“Boul Mich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I love Michigan Ave! Compared to fifth and sixth ave in NYC, It's cleaner,more scenic more picturesque!We have the SAME stores, but customer service, in general, seems to be less corporate;more friendly. The sculptures,and the artwork up and down the Avenue are famous for its originality. starting with the cows, lights,music,etc . There's no other place like it!

“Chicago Shopping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

High traffic and worth visiting for shopping. Has most of the high end stores you will not find every where. Check out State street in addition for a complete shopping experience.

“each section a bit different, all are lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

From Millennium Park to Oak Street Beach this lively thoroughfare has something for everyone. It is calmer and artsy south near the museums and theaters while elegant and fashionable north. In the north the shops are great, but better restaurants and a bit of respite are found on side streets or parallel avenues like Rush or Wabash. Rather magical on holidays and incredibly clean for a big city street. Walking in the early morning you will see folks scrupulously cleaning the sidewalks and storefronts each day.
