More than enough shopping to suit every taste. Everything you could possibly want to buy or eat all within very close proximity.

Not really very impressive because of the accessibility of all these stores these days, whether online or at the local mall. Admittedly, shopping is not my favorite thing though. The flower beds, however, were very beautiful.

Busy on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. My daughters shopped while my wife and I waited outside. Lots of people, tourists and locals, many well dressed folks. The daughters loved the shopping. Would visit again next time in town.

I am not a shopper by any stretch of the imagination, but the Magnificent Mile is a "must see". To watch the cult like shoppers is an experience in itself.

What can you say about this fabulous place? Eat! Shop! Sightsee! Museums! Art! Come on, and wander, grab a coffee and wander around. Stores from name brand, high fashion, private boutiques to restaurants, galleries, everywhere there is something different. Flowers, trees, art, gorgeous history everywhere!

I had limited time to shop due to business engagements, but was able to pick-up something I'd been needing to get at home from the Apple store and wander in a couple great stores.

Sort of something that you need to do when you go to Chicago! I cannot believe how easily you can get there from train!

Awesome place for shopping and people watching. Super busy but you can find just about anything you are looking for...and some things you didn't know you needed.

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.
