Walked the Magnificent Mile. Just sorry I was too early for the Christmas lights to be up. Historical buildings to photograph, malls and stores to explore and coffee shops/restaurants to enjoy. Nice way to spend the day.

A walk down the street is pretty much par for this event. Stores to stop in and shop at, and we found a museum along the way that was free but small. We toured this on way to visit the Drake Hotel.

Magnificent Mile is incredible. I hit LV, Burberry and then ate lunch with friends. It was a fun experience to window shop.

fancy shopping street - including super fancy like Tiffany and other high class boutiques. Also includes average priced things like vicotira secret, banana republic, lush, etc..... probably a lovely street for people who love shopping - for the rest of us, its pretty sad.

Yes Chicago has a wonderful transit system. Practically front door service. From Michigan take the Madison street Bus west to the United Center you can’t miss it
