Good grief they have every kind of store imaginable! There's something for everyone. Found me a Harley store and Pandora store. I'm set!

Always wonderful displays of flowers line the street. Wonderful smart shops, Sax, Burberry, Niemaum !arcus, Nike, Apple, etc. Today there are about 20 large sculptures of Police dogs lining the parade! This is the heart of a proud city.

Chicago is a unique American city and although it is quite large, it has a charm and vibe unlike any other. It has soaring buildings and a huge lake but it also has wonderful old and either restored or preserved icons like The Water Tower....More

Michigan Ave has a collection of top end luxury stores mixed with the historical Water Tower and lined with the most gorgeous flower beds I've ever seen. The beds line the street and should win awards with even 3" tall orchids in some of them....More

We've visited during the summer and the winter and enjoyed walking the Mile and the shopping experience immensely! No complaints - walking around in the city isn't for everyone, but if you like it, this is a great place to spend the time!

If you can't find what your looking for on the Michigan Ave Magnificent Mile then it probably doesn't exist. Nike, Apple, American Girl, Victoria's Secret, Macy's, Nordstrom's, Lord and Taylor, Gharadelli's, you name it, it's here!

We enjoyed exploring the Magnificent Mile. Many good restaurants and upscale shopping opportunities. The traffic was a hassle. We enjoyed the area more by parking our car in a convenient parking garage and spent the afternoon walking instead. It was a nice day so this...More

Gives such a wonderful feeling of the city - something to cheer up post long business days - walk around and enjoy

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.
