Magnificent Mile: a shopping and eating nirvana


Located in the city centre on Michigan Avenue, the Magnificent Mile is full of trendy restaurants, bars, and boutiques.

Chicago's version of Fifth Avenue stretches from the Michigan Bridge on the north bank of the river to Oak Street. Dubbed ‘Mag Mile' by Chicagoans, it has giant shopping centres  900 North Michigan Shops, Water Tower Place with its souvenir shops  and a Macy's.

There are countless luxury stores, including Chanel, Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Cartier. It's also a destination for gourmets, most notably for the Cape Cod Room in the Drake Hotel, famous for its oyster bar and fine fish cuisine, and the Italian restaurant Spiaggia, which has a Michelin star.
