The past week I made several trips downtown it was a wonderful visit. I shopped several stores and found everyone so nice and helpful. Several times we stopped folks on the street for directions and people were so friendly. I can't wait to go back.

It's the most beautiful perimeter in town. In addition to the diversity of architecture, you can feel the movement of people and their way of life. It is also where are the main artistic and cultural points. It's worth staying here.

If you love shopping or better still window shopping, this is the place to be in Chicago with all the designer shops and all. The beauty of this general tourist areas is that you can walk around from place to place while taking in the sights and doing some shopping as well!

Love the Mag mile! Fun place to spend a couple days with the family. Shops and adventures for everyone. We enjoy the restaurants and the shops. Summer months are more friendly for walking around the town.

May not be for everyone, but it is still a wonderful place to explore. While most of us can't afford it, it was still good to walk and enjoy the beauty of Chicago.

Definitely worth checking out. Stayed in a hotel in the middle of the Magnificent Mile area and liked being close to everything. Shops, dining, accommodations, etc. Worth a visit.

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
