Lots of big brands here. Bring your walking shoes and find your favorite brands. The place can be crowded but my views may have been skewed as I was there on a marathon weekend.

The Magic mile is a must. Michigan Avenue is beautifully laid out and the “mile” really shows off the best of retail in a true European Avenue setting.

We loved bringing our elementary age children and felt very safe. It was a great big city experience. We didn’t do a lot of shopping but did enjoy strolling. Food prices are high so be prepared.

If you like to shop, this is the place to go. Many name brand, higher and retail stores. Also many restaurants to choose from. Everything is fairly close together.

A beautiful shopping oriented stretch of Michigan Avenue. Lots of expensive to moderate priced shops. The streets are decorated with beautiful flowers and decorations. Lots of friendly people saw no trash or graffiti apart from a few stickers on some signs. Really nice.

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.
