This was right across from our hotel. 7 floors of shopping with a Garrett’s popcorn on the top floor without a line! Worth it just for that. Food court on lower level had decent quick options.

Located on North Michigan Avenue with a wide array of upscale shops. Great place to browse and stay away from the cold. They also have a great dining option at the food court.

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.

Harry Caray's is a vintage baseball, semi-hokey mini museum with pretty good food for this tourist trap within what was once a destination mall.
