Magnificent Mile is Chicago's most popular shopping street and the eighth most expensive shopping street in the U.S. However, although the street does owe most of its renown to the high-end stores like Tiffany's or Hugo Boss that line it, it would be a mistake to overlook all the other attractions the street has to offer. It is the many restaurants and cafes on the street, as well as plenty of clubs, hotels, museums, theatres and even a 360 degrees observatory that help to create its atmosphere.
Located in the heart of the city, even though the street is pleasantly wide and dotted with trees, it still tends to be quite crowded. You may also have trouble finding a parking spot if you come by car. You will probably have to park in one of the streets nearby.
