I really didn’t get the reason of this region being called Magnificent. It is just an avenue with stores, many of them offering upscale products, but this is also found in several cities.

Really nice to wander and browse. Good shop and they are doing a lot of refurbishment around Bloomingdales. It looks very grand and will be quite something when finished. Well worth a shop.

The Magnificent Mile is just that - Magnificent! Any season is special depending what time of year you favor. Take a leisurely stroll up and down Magnificent Mile. Do stop in for dinner or a drink along the way.

Shopping, restaurants, hotels, historic landmarks-it is all here! I love the mag mile. There are so many wonderful stores and many nice hotels, too. I love Christmas shopping here, but have to say-it gets very, very busy at Christmas time!

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

Metro BNSF line to Aurora Route 59 Station will be as close as you can get to the outlet malls on public transportation. Then I would suggest you catch an Uber from the train station to the outlet mall. Hope this helps!!
