ABOUT MAGNIFICENT MILE

The multitudes that inhabit Chicago work tirelessly to keep the local economy running, and when they are rewarded for their effort, they often spend their compensation at shops in the Magnificent Mile shopping district. The area comprising this bustling district is Michigan Avenue, in between Oak Street to the north and the Chicago River to the south. In the past, State Street and the area around it had served the same purpose as the Magnificent Mile, but competition with the suburbs caused a downturn.

After awhile, real estate developers acquired land along Michigan Avenue and implemented an idea from the Burnham Plan for Chicago as the Magnificent Mile. Malls, high-rises and Water Tower Place soon followed, as did wealth, affluence and fame, making this area one of the busiest shopping locations in the country. Highlights of the area include Nordstrom's Michigan Avenue location, three malls, several hotels, five-star restaurants, the Drake Hotel, the Trump Tower and the John Hancock Building. With so many people shopping in the area on an average day, it can be difficult to find a place to park, so the tactful shopper would book a Magnificent Mile parking spot ahead of time with ParkWhiz.
