OK the concept is adorable and the vibe is cute, but the prices are off the wall! So if you have 1 or many kids you might want to avoid this place.

Lots of old type candies to choose from along with today's favorites including gummy everythings, jelly beans in every flavor and a multitude of other candies. The chocolate selection was fantastic and had a huge selection of my favorite, white chocolate!

It's a little like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory but therein is the fun. It's silly, whimsical, not very practical, has a slight dark side -- well it's the parents that really have the hardest time with self-control isn't it? -- but is a lot of...More

They were out of A LOT of stuff. Empty bins all over the place. We were all pretty excited to go, but left feeling like its a lot of hype and nothing to back it up.

The moment you walk in, your sense are filled with the smell of sugar. It’s amazing. Though, prices are pretty high here. There’s a ton to look at but the price tag scares many people away.

This is the second city (&/or State) where Dylan’s candy bar located that my teenager child visited. The first one was in New York. She loved the experience! When we passed this shoo, my child was excited. Of course, it was crowded! But this store...More

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.
