Shopping's a breeze in the Windy City
Chicago shopping is a shopper’s paradise. The boulevard that is North Michigan Avenue features a literal mile (hence its nickname, the “Magnificent Mile”) of high-end retailers, some of which are stacked on top of one another in vertical indoor shopping malls. State Street, “that great street”, is the city’s original shopping corridor and remains vital today, although the stores there generally do not carry the cache that the stores on the Magnificent Mile do. Smaller, independent boutiques and specialty stores are more easily found on the streets that cross Michigan Avenue, or along Armitage Avenue in Lincoln Park.
