The Magnificent mile is great for finding deals. Macy's and Nordstrom are my favorite spots to hit the discount racks.

My family and I like to visit the Magnificent mile for great shopping. There is something here for everyone. Even if you aren't interested in buying anything, it can be fun for people watching too.

Michigan Avenue from the Chicago River to Oak Street is commonly referred to as the Mag Mile. It is a lovely stroll and has so many interesting shops and has several shopping malls to tempt any shopper regardless of their budget.

My wife and I enjoy walking and window shopping when we are in Chicago. Last time we were here was in December and it was cold! Still a lot of fun!

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.

Staying at Hyatt Regency in Rosemont (Chicago) and have never been before. Need some ideas for 2-3 days. Going to a convention there Aug.2017 for a Fest. Would like to arrive at least a couple days beforehand but not sure what there is to do, and how many days before would be good. Convention is on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
