Although this is a FREE tourist destination, you will want to bring some spending money on dining, shopping, rides and attractions should you be in the mood! 


Stroll, Shop and Snack through The Magnificent Mile                                                   FREE

The Magnificent Mile® is one of the top ten hospitality, fine dining and retail districts in the world, making it One of the Great Avenues of the World. Each of the Great Avenues has its own unique features, distinguishing it as a premier commercial center, while all provide visitors, local employees and residents with a world-class urban experience. This experience is the result of seven values: historic setting, spectacular streetscape, innovative architecture, distinctive retail, high-quality fine dining, world-class hotels and premier office space. For example: The Magnificent Mile is rooted in the 1909 Plan of Chicago, Daniel Burnham’s historic vision for a great metropolis and features spectacular gardens along a tree-lined boulevard with some of the world’s most distinctive buildings, both old and new. The retail, dining and hospitality venues are diverse and exciting, and the office space is some of the most highly valued in the world.

The Avenue is FREE to stroll through, however, highly recommended to bring spending money to cater to your whims and temptations (pamper!) for fine dining and shopping!  An opportunity to truly spoil yourself!
