We walked up and down Michigan Ave from the Chicago River to the Water Tower. All the trees along each side of the street were lit. The many famous stores are all decorated as are the beautiful hotels. We were taken by the overall effect.

Our visit to Chicago was planned 6 months in advance just to See the Miracle Mile decked out in all the Christmas decorations. It was so beautiful. All the stores lit up, lights in all the trees and shrubbery. Indescribable!

Must see at night! Lights and decorations are wonderful! A family tradition for us! Stay at the Drake and ask your cabbie to drive the full length of Michigan Ave!

Shopping is so much fun along the magnificent mile with an amazing selection of stores, but the holiday decorations make it that much more special.

First time walking the Magnificent Mile super crowded on a Friday afternoon in December. So many stores, so many restaurants, so many things to see and so beautifully decorated for the holiday season. It’s a must while your in Chicago.

Well manicured wide avenue with prestige stores like Ralph Lauren (the largest in the world) and a fantastic Neiman Marcus. Even if you don't buy anything, you want to see this glamour.

Fantastic selection of stores - something for everyone and gorgeous buildings make this to be a great sightseeing experience as well. Stayed at Embassy Suites and walked everywhere. Will definitely be back again. Love sharing this experience with the next generation now.

Love love Chicago. All the stores,malls, gift shops, restaurants. So many things to do and so much to eat. Definitely dress warm in the winter, very Christmassy, very expensive. Loved the atmosphere and the buildings decorated so festively

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.
