    Fans of historic architecture won't want to miss a walk down the Magnificent Mile, a prominent section of Michigan Avenue. In addition to the rows of upscale shops at ground level, don't forget to look up at some of the most famous buildings in the city - the Trump Tower, the John Hancock Center, the Wrigley Building, the Tribune Tower and the Chicago Water Tower.

    Not only interesting due to presence of numerous shops, cafes, beautiful architecture but you won't get tired walking the so called mile due to the ambiance. I was fortunate that our hotel was located right on the Mile :) TheMagnificent Mile is located in close proximity to public transit.

    The beautiful stretch of Michigan Ave near the lake with its shopping area and restaurants is beautiful around Christmas and New year.

    The architecture is lovely but Magnificent Mile has been completely mall-ified. A shame to see it. Very few non-chains.

    Cool place to shop and eat! Filled with big brand name stores like Burberry,Prada and many more! Only cheaper are to shop in the Magnificent Mile will probably be at the Water Tower.

    New York has 5th Avenue. LA has Rodeo Drive. Chicago has the Mag Mile. Those with money to spend will have plenty of choices, with shops like Burberry, Armani and Tiffany's lining the street. Start at the Old Water Tower building then work your way south towards the river. Once you've shopped your heart out, you can take a well deserved break in Millennium Park.

    A mile of stores along Michigan ave, through the heart of downtown Chicago. Macy's, Niketown, Sony, Lacoste, etc.

    The Magnificent Mile a.k.a. North Michigan Ave is the "Fifth Ave" of Chicago. The area is a shopper's delight and it offers a broad range of retail stores from American Eagle Outfitters to Armani Exchange. There is something for everyone.

    This is a must stop if you are in Chicago for the first time. Shop at some of the high end stores or dine at some of the top restaurants. In the summer, there are beautiful gardens that line the Magnificent Mile. During the holiday season, massive amounts of lights adorn the trees. It's quite a sight!

    Like most of Chicago, everything is pretty big as is this street which is unusually
    wide by most major city standards. It's lined up with huge buildings and loads of shopping.

    Go to Magnificent Mile for some nice shopping while in Chicago. They have some nice upscale shops and restaurants here and it is very close to other known Chicago attraction.

    All shopping centers and malls are pretty much the same everywhere... So why pay extra to fly it home

    While it is overcrowded and very touristy, its best to think of it as the worlds largest outdoor mall. It stretches for a mile with great shops and other malls inside of it, such as Water Tower, North Bridge, and 900 N. Michigan Ave. There's a lot of walking, traffic is terrible so be ready

    An attraction for shoppers with both a lot of time and money. It is a grand avenue to walk down though and see all the newest "stuff".

    Walked from one end to the other wiith lake michigan on the other side. I love architectur and the variety of buildings were great. Let's not forget about the stores and not too crowded which is also good. Leads to everything that is cool about chicago.

    The Magnificent Mile is great for a lot of reasons. You can stay at beautiful historic hotels in this area. The area caters to tourists by offering several different trolley tours for easy accessible transportation. Shopping, food, and entertainment are around every corner. Within a few blocks you can find a multi-leveled Nike Store, the Hard Rock Cafe, and a movie theater all in walking distance from popular hotels.

    The downside of this area is that most things are expensive in this area. Plan on dropping some cash when you visit Michigan Ave.
