Broke my trip into 2 locations, the first near Michigan so I could make the most of the Magnificent Mile and then moved closer to the river so I could enjoy other activities. This is a magical avenue with so much to see and enjoy. Love the shopping here - better than New York.

I didn't actually shop in any of the stores while here, but I could see that there was a ton of great shopping. I enjoyed the scenic views along the way down Michigan Avenue. Definitely a must see if you are in the area or if you love to shop. I took Michigan Avenue and walked to see Buckingham Fountain and the parks.

Always busy, great shopping, fabulous restaurants, lively atmosphere - North Michigan Avenue is the place to be in Chicago. Head to the John Hancock Tower area, and you will not be disappointed!

Lots of shopping and crowds. Always fun and up to a few years ago very safe. Now unfortunately some kids are up to no good and it has put a scar on the area. be careful there at night

A great stroll down a beautifully landscaped and well maintained shopping Avenue. Nice mix of pricy and mid-line shops. Downside you will encounter multiple pan handlers both docile and agressive on every block on both sides of the street. They seem to be tolerated by the local authorities but I found them disturbing, and in two encounters frightening, I was glad I was on a busy street with others around but not happy with the experience. It was the same on State Street shopping. I will definitely do my shopping excursions somewhere other than downtown Chicago and stick to the Attractions that only Chicago can offer = Museums and Ballparks
