The Magnificent Mile® runs down Chicago’s Michigan Avenue, and offers some of the best dining, shopping, and accommodations in the city.
When you stay near the Mag Mile, as locals call it, you’re in for a real treat.
Numerous landmarks dot this upscale area. You can hardly walk a block without stumbling across an old hotel or one of the tallest buildings in the world. You’ll find that the area’s ambiance changes with the passing seasons. In spring, tulips bloom everywhere, and in winter, the trees lining the Mag Mile are lit up, setting the city aglow. Make sure your pocketbook is packed; you’ll find all sorts of shopping to do in this neighbourhood. If you’re visiting at the beginning of fall, stop by Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival™. Yes, you can still shop, but you can also attend fashion shows, parties, and concerts.
Even if you’re not in town to shop until you drop, you’ll find plenty to do at the Mag Mile and elsewhere. Sample food from the outstanding restaurants lining Michigan Avenue, or head into the greater River North area to explore what it has to offer. Stop by Hershey’s Chocolate World to learn about the candy-making process (and maybe sneak some sweet treats). Alternatively, head north to Lake Shore Drive and visit Lincoln Park, where you can relax at the waterfront, visit the conservatory, or look at the boats at Diversey Harbor.
