One of the country’s top shopping districts, Chicago’s Magnificent Mile is an entertainment avenue with everything from fine dining to luxury shopping, museums, theater, and more. Comparable to New York’s 5th Avenue and Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, the Magnificent Mile is a one stop wonder for any budget and all tastes.

Those searching for some big city luxury can find it on the Mile. Saks Fifth Avenue mingles with other high end retailers and designers like Neiman Marcus, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Chanel, Tiffany & Co., and Cartier. Spas offer patrons an expert release into relaxation while restaurants such as Les Nomades, TRU, and Petterino’s are delicious ways to get away from your daily routine.

Familiar, and less expensive, attractions are also in attendance. Express, Crate & Barrel, and Macy’s along with shops you may find in your local mall all find their way into Michigan Avenue’s premier shopping district. Casual dining experiences are top notch with the gourmet burgers of M Burger and the tasty creations at Magnolia Bakery. Bars, pubs, and lounges are found along the avenue and range in luxury from sports bars to pre-theater cocktail lounges.

Attractions such as 360 Chicago, Lincoln Park Zoo, the Navy Pier, and museums including the Museum of Science and Industry and the Chicago Art Institute are located nearby. Broadway in Chicago and the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre promote beautiful and talented renditions of popular plays, musicals, and more.

This premier district offers the best in the way of dining, shopping, and general luxury. There is a reason they call it the Magnificent Mile.
