Water Tower offers some great stores. I especially loved the Dr. Seuss art gallery. It's fun to take the glass elevator to the top floor and then work your way down. If you time it right, you end up on the 2nd floor food court...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.
