Small shop on Michigan Avenue serving delicious ice cream. A greeter meets you at the door with a free piece of Ghirardelli chocolate. Our group stopped by for ice cream and milkshakes. Great location across from Macy's. Staff were friendly.

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.
