If you can feel your credit card burning a hole through your wallet, the Magnificent Mile is the place to go. This stretch of Michigan Avenue, extending north from the Loop, beckons to shop-aholics with big brand-name stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Macy's and Lord & Taylor, as well as several smaller boutiques, (though you should keep in mind that Bucktown and Wicker Park offer more unique shopping options). Architecture buffs will also appreciate a stroll down this street, thanks to the eclectic collection of buildings found there. As well as world-class shopping, the Magnificent Mile is home to several top-notch eateries and luxury hotels.
