People who come to Chicago and plan on doing a little of everything will find the Magnificent Mile exactly what they are looking for. Located on eight blocks in Chicago’s downtown, the Magnificent Mile lives up to its name, with over 200 places to eat, 400 shops and unique shopping, and being home to over 50 hotels, you can plan your entire vacation within the Mile and never run out of things to do.
You can tour the Magnificent Mile on foot or in the winter months take a horse drawn carriage and enjoy the sites of lighted trees and store windows. When it gets too cold for you, head inside to one of the Mile’s two museums or take in a show at one of the three theaters. However you don’t have to be inside to enjoy entertainment. Street performers are often seen within the Magnificent Mile. In the warmer months of spring and summer, head outside to take in the mini gardens lining the neighborhood streets. In April you can tip toe through the tulips during the Mile’s Tulip Days. However you plan on spending your time in Chicago, the Magnificent Mile is sure to entertain one and all.
