We live in New York and have been to 5th avenue a bunch of times. This is a very small replica if you will. The coolest thing about it is there are 3 mini mall areas off of the mile that you can explore more...More

Nothing magnificent for me here. It's a strip of some high-end stores and other standard places to shop, with not enough good choices of places to eat. Add to it the almost constant sound of sirens and, unlike a lot of towns like this, no...More

My kids enjoyed seeing all the different stores on the mile. They liked the Under Armor store and the GOT display at the A T &T store. Also liked Dylan's Candy Bar! There is something for everyone there! :)

This one doesn't live up to it's hype. I've been to several cities that have shopping strips and districts that have more to offer. This has the same stores your standard mall has, and nothing to see in addition to that.

Yes, you can go to a Disney store, Saks Fifth Avenue, or Macy's anywhere. However, The Magnificent Mile goes one better. It provides you with the amazing architecture Chicago has been known for. In addition to the shops mentioned the area is home to the...More

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.
