Fun to explore and look at all the shores.

May not be for everyone, but it is still a wonderful place to explore. While most of us can't afford it, it was still good to walk and enjoy the beauty of Chicago.

Love the Mag mile! Fun place to spend a couple days with the family. Shops and adventures for everyone. We enjoy the restaurants and the shops. Summer months are more friendly for walking around the town.

Definitely worth checking out. Stayed in a hotel in the middle of the Magnificent Mile area and liked being close to everything. Shops, dining, accommodations, etc. Worth a visit.

You simply are not going to find a comparable number of high end stores, shops and botiques in the US inless it is 5th Avenue in New York or Rodeo Drive in LA.

First trip to Chicago and enjoyed spending time shopping on the Mag Mile. Every shop you could need along with restaurants to re-fuel before continuing shopping.

Neighborhood Profile
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. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
