Chicago Shopping

Shopping within City Limits

The most famous shopping district in Chicago is the Magnificent Mile located on North Michigan Avenue in downtown. There are hundreds of stores and boutiques to please any shopper. From high-end designers to quirky Chicago-based boutiques, the Mile is a great place to spend the day or evening.

Take the trolley, and learn about the history of the Mile from the driver. It runs up and down the Mile, so you can hop on and off as you please. From athletic stores to high tech toys to ball gowns, the Magnificent Mile is a must visit.

Visit Water Tower Place whose eight floors will have you shopping till you drop. With more than 100 stores, there is something unique for everyone. The atrium is eight stories high and offers breathtaking views of the city. This is the place to see and be seen.

Options Just Outside of the City

A great mall to take the kids and find fabulous bargains is the Hawthorn Shopping Center. About 40 minutes north of Chicago in Vernon Hills, it features a free Imagination Castle for the kids to play while you shop. The mall has more than 140 stores ranging from department stores to boutiques. You can also enjoy the wonderful food court that is kid-friendly.

For a truly spectacular end to your day, head to Cueno Museum and Gardens right up the road, and tour the 1914 mansion and its 74-acres of beautifully landscaped fountains, lakes and gardens. It even has a nine-hole golf course.

Travel 20 minutes north of the city for a relaxing shopping experience at the Old Orchard Shopping Center. This outdoor sanctuary is lined with trees and comfortable places to sit and people watch. As added perks, there is a children’s play area and beautiful water gardens scattered throughout the mall.
