We walked by this place on our way to Michigan Ave. We made sure to stop in on our way back to our hotel...TWICE. The first time we only got the free sample. The second time we bought a small bag of wrapped chocolate squares...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.
