Was sad to see so many business permanently closed or in the process of closing. Nice walk along the mile, saw a musician perform near the river. Nice to see people about and enjoying themselves. Major police presence, not sure why.

Even visiting in March the Mag Mile is wonderful - save in times of COVID. Shops have closed or dramatically reduced hours and it feels like a lot of the luster & ambience has been masked (pun very much intended). If you're planning a trip to Chicago, hold off until this pandemic is less of an ominous presence.

Great place to walk and see the sights in Chicago. We felt safe while out during the and early night hours. As it started to turn yo evening hours there seemed to be a lot of beggars out on the streets. We are used to this as we live in town that deals with this day or night. Just be prepared and watch your purse if you have one.
