“Everything you think it is.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Pricey, spendy, expensive, posh, chic, astounding. Sure it's overpriced -- by some definitions. It's also THE shopping destination if you're looking for the upscale experience. Ladies, try a complimentary bra fitting at {intimacy}! It will change your world.

“Great shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A great variety of stores, all in walking distance of each other and several hotels and restaurants. Don't bother taking your car, parking is impossible and you waste money on a valet that you could be shopping with. Walk from your hotel or catch a cab.

“Must see to experience Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Of course it is almost a cliche and Chicago is so much more than Michigan Avenue, but still it well-known because it is a must see for a visit to Chicago. It has everything you could want in a big-city experience. Wonderful selection of hotels that offer great specials on the weekends if you are flexible to try different properties. The restaurants are very diverse. Great architecture to see. Easy to walk around. And of course the shopping is what draws it all together.

If you are planning on visiting Chicago, then you will get to know Michigan Avenue because it is where it all happens.

“Shop Here After Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We love shopping Michigan Ave. Between Christmas and New Years. The shops are outstanding and the deals are, too. Everything that was full price right before Christmas is 70% off. The kids love it because it's like Christmas, round 2!
