The Magnificent Miles on Michigan Avenue is a dream come true for shopping addicts. Literally hundreds of shops, restaurants and hotels litter the street, with a few of Chicago's famous landmarks thrown in. The shops and restaurants are generally upscale, catering to the rich or spendthrift(and tourists, that is), but you can find moer affordable places as well. In addition to brand shops and department stores, you can also find some very classy restaurants on the Magnificent Mile. Also, it has been officially named one of the best 10 shopping avenues in the world (according to National Geographic)

Address:
401 N. Michigan Ave.

Price:
Not for bargain-shopping budgets, unfortunately
