Fantastic shopping. You will get your walking in. We had a great time and got to go into many shops that we don't have in Southeast Ohio.

Many shopping choices, especially for those with expensive taste. Easy to navigate. Starbucks literally on every corner plus restaurants and cafes. Everything was beautifully decorated for Christmas, even the boulevard along Michigan Avenue.

What can I say? There's every store you can imagine one after the other. There is website for the Magnificent Mile where you can see details of all the stores. It's clean, well kept. There is a mix of high end stores and more affordable stores.

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.
