Chicago is a world class city and the Magnificent Mile is its premier destination for shopping, dining, arts, and culture. This is definitely the place to go if you’re on the hunt for haute couture, but you’ll also find plenty of quirky boutiques and fashion-forward department stores. The district is also home to more than 275 restaurants with outdoor patios, roof decks, and phenomenal views of the city, as well as plenty of entertainment options.
History buffs will appreciate the close proximity of 50+ historic landmarks and museums (art lovers won't want to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art, while local history hounds might prefer one of the many walking or boat tours). Fun for the young and young at heart, Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier soars a whopping 150 feet into the sky, with regular live musical performances, midway-style games, and festivals scheduled on the ground below.
