“Pretty During the Holidays”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

I normally don't shop along the Mag Mile, but the fam and I love going during the holidays. It makes for great people watching! We love seeing all the streets lit up and festive. It really does put one in the holiday spirit.

“Great place to shop or just to walk”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

My wife did the shopping I just did the walking. I must say there are better deals found in stores just of Michigan Avenu. So much history in Chicago. What a great city.

“non-stop shopping”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

You can find any retail store you are looking for along Michigan Avenue. Definitely worth visiting if you plan to shop. If you are not interested in shopping, nice place to take a walk. Very touristic, also entertaining.

“Great shopping at top end prices”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Great shopping here. My favorites are the Apple Store, Crate and Barrel, Sur La Table, J Crew, and Polo. Also recommend taking a twenty minute walk south and west to State Street. Better prices at TJ Maxx and Macy's.
