The Magnificent Mile, or The Mag Mile, is an upscale section of Chicago's Michigan Avenue, running from the Chicago River to Oak Street in the Near North Side. The district is located adjacent to downtown, and one block east of Rush Street. The Magnificent Mile serves as the main thoroughfare between Chicago's Loop business district and its Gold Coast.

Currently Chicago's largest shopping district, various mid-range and high-end shops line this section of the street; approximately 3,100,000 square feet (290,000 m2) are occupied by retail, restaurants, museums and hotels. Rent on The Magnificent Mile is the eighth most expensive in the country, behind Fifth Avenue in New York and Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills

Lots to do: shopping, restaurants, and an AMC Dine-In movie theater! Window displays are FANTASTIC, and the trees light up at night--very lively. Definitely a must-see/experience for Chicago!

Great shopping on Michigan Ave accompanied by beautiful architecture and good eats. New Yorkers tell me that like it better than 5th ave. Agreed.

This is Michigan Avenue, Boul Mich, the Magnificent Mile. It is everything and anything a shopping street could and should be: It is great department stores and small galleries and boutiques, singular restaurants and everyman food courts. It is grand hotels. It is a signature skyscraper with an observation deck and another, gothic this time and deckless, with chunks of a great pyramid and the Alamo imbedded in its limestone.

Great for shopping and eating. Be prepared to pay for parking if you're driving. Otherwise tons of cabs and stores for everyone.

The most famous street in Chicago is the place to be in the Windy City. Luxury shopping, world class architecture, & dining options abound.

Full of shopping and restaurants. I tend to shy away from The Magnificent Mile due to the dense traffic (both car and pedestrian) on most days of the week. However, it is a must if you are visiting.
