The magnificent Mile is a shorter part of the Michigan Avenue from around Chicago River going to Oak Street.

It a very upscale place for shopping with all the shops of the greater brands. It is probably the largest shopping district in the city.

There are also restaurants and office buildings or hotels, but it's mainly for shopping. You must have some money in your pocket if uoi come here. of course, you can simply walk around as well and windowshop, like I did the first time... ;)
