Downtown Chicago’s Michigan Avenue is home to the Magnificent Mile, a premier shopping destination with plenty of luxury boutiques and stores to spark any shopper’s interest.
To get there & experience the awesome shopping in Chicago, you have several options. Chicago’s famous elevated train, the “L,” can take you close, hailing a taxi is easy, but for a unique adventure, why not try a Chicago Trolley or Double Decker Bus from Chicago Trolley and Double Decker Co. If you’d rather take your time and make your own adventure, a day pass with Divvy Bike Share lets you pick up and drop off rental bikes all day long from several kiosk locations along the northernmost reaches of Michigan Avenue.
One thing is for sure—no matter how you arrive, you’ll have an exciting time filling your bags with clothing, accessories and gifts from the power players on Michigan Avenue. Water Tower Place houses retail bigwig Macy’s®, along with 100 other retail stores, such as American Girl® and Coach™. The 900 Shops located on the North tip of the Magnificent Mile have made Bloomingdale’s their biggest anchor store, with more than 70 other stores spanning over 450,000 square feet and seven levels. From Adidas® to Yolanda Lorente, there’s something for everyone. The Shops at North Bridge has Nordstrom, which offers free bag and coat check, personal stylists and full spa open seven days a week. If you fancy yourself a big spender, you can do some serious buying at Louis Vuitton, Stuart Weitzman® and the two-level Hugo Boss®.
The adage is true. You can shop ‘til you drop in Chicago.
